Jackie Ross Flaum began her career at The Hartford Courant, where she won a Connecticut Sigma Delta Chi journalism award for editorial writing.
When her family moved to Memphis she worked as a communications consultant, speechwriter, and freelance author. After abandoning reality for fiction, she won first place for romantic suspense in the 21st annual Duel on the Delta sponsored by the River City Romance Writers. Thanks to the Malice in Memphis anthologies, she got interested in short story writing and won the ShortStoryland.com monthly award and then took second place in the six-month competition. Her work also appears in “Stories through the Ages: Baby Boomer Plus” and, in the spring issue of the literary journal “Backchannels”.
Her civil rights era novel “Justice Tomorrow” will be released in February, followed by the sequel, “Price of a Future.”
When she isn’t writing, she is knee-deep in flash cards for Team Read, a volunteer program that helps second graders learn to read.
