About Me

K.J. Jackson, asleep on the job

Hi! If you are here looking at this page, you must be wondering a bit about me. I know I like checking out authors I like—where they live, what they do, what they think about.

I think the best way to get a picture of who I am and what makes me tick, is to couple your imagination with a list of my most favorite things in the world. Then you can create your own crazy picture of who I am. Hence, the “Best Evers” list below.

But if the list is no fun, and you are dying to know something specific about me, let me know in the comments. Maybe I will tell, maybe I won’t—depends on what you ask!


  • Columbia Fleece jackets. Any color, Full zip.
  • Rembrandt Gouda sliced thin over Broders’ Cucina Italiana flatbread (a twin cities winner — I get three or four when I stop by there).
  • The instrumental in the second half of Natalie Merchant’s When They Ring The Golden Bells.
  • Road trips. Anywhere—US or overseas.
  • My two kids and husband (of course!), and the rest of the fam!
  • My dog’s head nestled into my lap.
  • Ken Burns: The National Parks: America’s Best Idea documentary series.
  • Almost anything written in Men’s Journal (some of the smartest articles around).
  • My volleyball team.
  • The smell at the top of a mountain.
  • Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina.
  • Turtles hatching on Heron Island, Australia.
  • Laughing with my dearest friends.
  • A very specific watering hole near Dandridge, Tennessee.
  • My toes buried in white sand.
  • Watching people I love fall in love.
  • An organized junk drawer (it never happens, but when it does—shazam!)
  • The pork entree at the Dakota Jazz Club.
  • The giant jackalope at Wall Drug, South Dakota.
  • The one day in summer it is warm enough for me to bare my arms at night.
  • Being able to sleep in.

A snapshot, but paints some sort of a picture—whatever that may be!



I specialize in paranormal and historical romance, will work for travel, and am a sucker for a good story in any genre.

I live in Minnesota with my husband, two children, and a two dogs who entertain me daily with their ham-n-cheese act.
