Jacqui Morrison started writing poems and short stories as a child where she also enjoyed public speaking in elementary school and at university. In High School, a great teacher, Lenore Hawley, encouraged her writing and inspired her to never stop. Jacqui has a bachelor’s degree from Ryerson Polytechnical University and currently takes courses at both the University of Toronto and Laurentian University.
Her career is a complicated web and includes: owning an ice cream parlour and fine food shop, teaching creative writing, teaching computer applications, social service work, tourism marketing and health promotion.
She lives in northern Ontario, Canada with her daughter Alison, (born in 1995), her husband Wayne, a golden retriever named Willow and four feisty cats. At age seventeen, Jacqui developed Rheumatoid Arthritis and has never let the arthritis slow her down. Jacqui is an extremely tenacious person.
