I’m Jackie Layton, as you can see, I write cozy mysteries. I’ve lived my entire life in the South. Kentucky then Georgia, back to Kentucky and now the coast of South Carolina.

As a child I loved to read and play with my dolls and Barbies. In high school I dreamed of writing stories, but I didn’t pursue the dream until my youngest son was in high school. One day it hit me I better learn how to write or it would never happen.

I enjoy exploring the Low Country of South Carolina so much I chose it for the location of the fictional town of Heyward Beach. I spend my time working as a pharmacist, volunteering with a children’s after school program, attending my new church, and of course writing cozy mysteries.
