Biography

Jackie Yeager

Jackie Yeager has a Masters degree in Education, lives in Rochester, NY with her real life prince charming & their two royally amazing teenagers, and would live in a castle if she could. Hey, a girl’s gotta dream, right? When she's not living in my own fairy tale world, she spends her time reading, running (well sometimes), thinking about her next trip to Disney World and cheering for the crew at marathons, triathlons, cross country meets, track meets, and hockey & baseball games. Yeah, she does a lot of cheering! She's also the former coach of a middle school Odyssey of the Mind team who once upon a time competed at the World Finals. Yay team! They were actually the inspiration behind her debut book, and also its sequel.
