On a good day, Jackie Chanel is a writer, editor, and music fanatic. Most days, she’s just a pop culture enthusiast, coffee in the morning/wine in the evening drinker, and reality TV junkie.

“Writing books isn’t what I decided to do; it’s what I was born to do. At any given time, I have about fifteen characters in my head and they all speak at once.”

Jackie Chanel has written thirteen novels ranging from Urban Fiction to Contemporary Romance. When she’s not writing in her batcave, she can usually be found in her favorite reading spot reading one of the 700 books on her TBR list or watching reality TV with a bowl of Fruit Loops.
