Gwynne Jackson writes across multiple genres, with a focus on romance and women’s fiction. A 2018 Golden Heart® finalist in contemporary romance, her books explore the nature of love, human interactions, and found family (and often ghosts). She loves writing complex, unapologetic characters in complex, unapologetic settings where the stakes are high and the payoff proves to be worth all the angst.

A founding member of All The Kissing, she’s the one who dreams up the Twitter #FridayKiss prompts. Besides writing, she spends her time on arts & crafts, cleaning up after the cats, and helping other writers make their work shine. She lives on an island in Puget Sound with her family, pets, and a band of local sea otters whose hijinks are endlessly amusing. Like all good Northwesterners, she knows too many ways to describe the rain.
