Long Bio:

Angelica R. Jackson, in keeping with her scattered Gemini nature, has published articles on gardening, natural history, web design, travel, hiking, and local history. Other interests include pets, reading, green living, and cooking for food allergies (the latter not necessarily by choice, but she’s come to terms with it). Ongoing projects include short fiction, poetry, novels, art photography, and children’s picture books.

She’s also been involved with capturing the restoration efforts for Preston Castle (formerly the Preston School of Industry) in photographs and can sometimes be found haunting its hallways. 
An incurable joiner, she is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (where she served most recently as Illustrator Coordinator for her local chapter), and several other writing organizations.

She shares a home in California's Gold Country with a husband, a rescued Basset Fauve de Bretagne dog, plus a Miniature Pinscher/Nibblonian mix, a reformed-feral tabby, and far too many books (if that's even possible). She is the author of the award-winning Faerie Crossed young adult urban fantasy series, and her photos are collected in Capturing The Castle: Images of Preston Castle (2006-2016)

One-line synopsis for Capturing The Castle:

On a hilltop in Ione, California, stands an unlikely castle with fanciful turrets and soaring clock tower. This is Preston Castle, formerly known as the Preston School of Industry, which operated as a youth correctional facility from 1894 to 1960. These portraits of the Castle and its arrested decay were taken over a ten-year period by A.R.Jackson.

Back-cover copy for Capturing The Castle:

On a hilltop in Ione, California, there stands an unlikely castle with fanciful turrets and a soaring clock tower, looming over the town at its feet. This is Preston Castle, formerly known as the Preston School of Industry, which operated as a youth correctional facility from 1894 through 1960.


Fascinated by this unique building, Angelica R. Jackson has photographed its interior over a ten-year period, and learned something of its history. Meanwhile, the Preston Castle Foundation has been working to preserve and restore selected rooms, and many of these photos will take you back in time to their state of arrested decay.

One-line synopsis for Crow's Rest:

Sixteen-year-old Avery Flynn is determined to reclaim her almost-boyfriend from the Fae, with the help of the creature who stole his body in the first place.

 

Back-cover copy for Crow's Rest:

Avery Flynn arrives for a visit at her Uncle Tam's, eager to rekindle her summertime romance with her crush-next-door, Daniel.

 

But Daniel’s not the sweet, neurotic guy she remembers, and she wonders if this is her Daniel at all. Or if someone--or something--has taken his place.

Her quest to find the real Daniel, and get him back, plunges Avery into a world of Fae and changelings, where creatures swap bodies like humans change their socks, and magic lives much closer to home than she ever imagined.

One-line synopsis for Merlin's Stronghold:

When Avery is blamed for the destruction of the Border between Faerie and her own world, clearing her name will depend on convincing Merlin, the original embodiment of wild magic, to help before the devastation becomes permanent.

Back-cover copy for Merlin's Stronghold:

Just when Avery Flynn thinks she’s gaining some control over her magic, the Border between Faerie and the human world collapses in a catastrophic explosion. With waves of wild magic laying waste to Fae and human territories, the blame falls on Avery and her fiery temper.

Clearing her name will mean staying ahead of the grim Wild Huntsman on her trail, and convincing Merlin, the original embodiment of wild magic, to help before the devastation becomes permanent.

But as allies and enemies alike try to force their own agendas on her, trust does not come easily to Avery. She’ll need to set aside her doubts and accept that she can’t do this alone—before it’s too late for both worlds.
