About Jackie Buxton
Jackie Buxton is a writer, editor and teacher of creative writing, living in Yorkshire with her husband and two teenage daughters. Jackie used her recent experience of an aggressive form of breast cancer to inform and dispel some myths about a cancer diagnosis via her popular blog. Her posts became the frame-work of self-help memoir, Tea & Chemo (Urbane Publications, November 2015). Jackie’s award-winning short stories can be found in three anthologies, They Lied!, Stories for Homes and Seaglass, as well as appearing regularly in Chase Magazine. When not writing or reading, over-seeing house and teens, she can be found running, cycling or tripping up though the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. Her ambitions are modest: to read (even) more, go to bed earlier and have more coffee dates with friends. Jackie published her debut novel, a compelling morality tale Glass Houses, with Urbane in November 2016.
