Jackie Dolamore, in brief: I'm a YA author represented by Jennifer Laughran at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. I'm 28 years old, living in Orlando (but dying to move more northward) with two cats and my boyfriend of eleven years.

My debut novel, MAGIC UNDER GLASS, about a dance hall girl who falls for a fairy prince trapped in the body of a clockwork automaton, was released in December '09. The sequel, MAGIC UNDER STONE, is forthcoming, date TBA, but before that will be BETWEEN THE SEA AND SKY, a love story between a mermaid and a winged dude, in June 2011.

This is my more "personal" journal. If you want strictly book/writing stuff, head on over to http://jaclyndolamore.blogspot.com.

Five Rules of Life Ms. Fabulous Frock Lives By:

1. Overdress. Feel pretty. Wear 60's dresses and cherry red heels to the grocery store.
2. Savor every meal. Take time to smell the extra-virgin olive oil.
3. Pursue art and knowledge.
4. Choose time over money whenever you can.
5. Be witty and kind and slightly pretentious, but never take yourself too seriously!

"I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. ... I would like to be everyone, a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person." --Sylvia Plath

"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will." --George Bernard Shaw

"I hate cynicism ... It's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." --Conan O'Brien
