Jacqueline likes writing about families - with all their ups and downs - and usually from the point of view of the children who live in them. Growing up and friendship are also important themes in her stories.
When she is not busy writing she enjoys reading (she has over 15,000 books at home), watching films, swimming, dancing, shopping and visiting art galleries.
This is what Jacqueline says about her work:
"I don't have many long detailed descriptions in my books, but I always describe my girl characters. I think it's important to know exactly what they look like. I'm especially interested in their hair. I've described girls with wild fizzy hair, girls with long straight dark hair, girls with hair dyed bright red. I've got very very short hair (which is handy because I go swimming early every morning and it only takes a minute to dry). However, I like long hair best. I think it looks beautiful. Lots of famous artists share my fixation."
