Who Is Millie Jackson?
I felt the need to tell my story and to let others know that out of tragedy, hope is more often than not, just around the corner.
I have many favourite authors. I loved Liane Moriarty’s earlier work. I am inspired by Eckhart Tolle and many of the Buddhist teachings.
My favourite food is seafood especially prawns and crabs
Walking by water, coffee with friends and browsing shops especially bookstores. I love attending book launches and writers’ festivals.
I always wanted to be an actress or a singer. I started writing when I was very young and also wanted to keep doing that.
I enjoy pace, humour and honesty as well as a good plot twist.
7. What was one of the most surprising things you learned from writing your book?
I learned that it doesn’t just flow every day, that creativity comes in bursts. I also learned that slumps can be hard but can be worked through if you have the right people and tools around you.
From a very young age, but more seriously after attending a writers’ festival in Ubud around four years ago.
To do it properly it can take years. I believe at least one year with all of the multitude of edits etc.
My next book is a murder mystery set on the northern beaches.
I have always enjoyed writing and reading the written word. Riding the Rainbow. is my first book. It is written over many years and spans two centuries. With time, there is progress and change but the essence of the message in the book remains unchanged with time and will continue to do so.
There will always be an element of risk in pregnancy and childbirth.
There will always be families who have been affected by the shock of disability.
Millie Jackson writes novels and short stories that feature an honest exploration of contemporary issues. Whilst she often uses a humorous approach in her writing, she also delves into the difficult topics of addiction, domestic violence, eating disorders and spirituality.
