About Jackie Layton

Thanks for stopping by my website.

I’m Jackie Layton, wife, mother, friend, pharmacist, and cozy mystery author.

I’ve been a reader as long as I can remember, and I’ve dreamed of writing for years. With encouragement from my husband and family, I pursued this dream.

I’ve always loved visiting the coast for vacations. The beach is my happy place despite cracking my ribs while riding the waves and getting a hook stuck in my foot that required a trip to the emergency room. When the doctor pushed the hook out of my foot, I learned a person really can see stars when in extreme pain. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop me from beach vacations and now I live on the coast.

My first cozy mystery Bite the Dust is set in the fictional coastal town of Heyward Beach, South Carolina. This is the first book in A Low Country Dog Walker Mystery Series.

Dog-Gone Dead, Bag of Bones, Caught and Collared, and A Killer Unleashed are also in this series. Book 6 is scheduled to release in 2024.

These books are available most places where you buy books.
