Strong female characters and quirky, light-hearted tales.

Hi, I’m Jackie, and I love to write contemporary fiction (particularly women’s fiction) and speculative fiction, both with a humorous take. I also enjoy tea, chocolate and, of course, curling up with a great book.

I have worked in publishing and the media for over 20 years, in both London and Sydney. My debut novel, The Ghost Mothers, is very loosely inspired by my time working in the magazine industry, many moons ago.

I’m currently hard at work on the next book, which is part of a new series. If you would like to be notified of new books as they are released, you can join my Reader’s Group here:

I blog every month or so, sharing news as I write, edit and publish my books.

If you’d like to reach out directly, you can do so at info@jackiemccarthy.com. Or, if you’re socially-inclined, feel free to find me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by!
