Jackie is a professional writer and public speaker. I first met her online when she was writing for b5media. She was the blogger for the Phoenix area. If you've heard of Darren Rowse of Problogger, he's one of the founders of b5media.
Anyway, back to Jackie. We are also Facebook friends and she posted an invite to a book signing at Pluma Designs located in the Signature Salon Studios in Scottsdale. She gets her hair done there and it's not too far from my house. So, I decided I wanted to take this opportunity to buy her book and give her a hug ...in person.
Here's what the cover of her book looks like. I haven't started reading it yet but it looks like a great resource for drives, day trips and weekend trips in Arizona. So, if you live here or are planning to take a vacation to the Phoenix area, you might consider buying Jackie's book. You can purchase it here.
Jackie is a woman who loves adventure and travel. She has a philosophy of life that she calls BIKE and speaks on this topic as a member of the National Speaker's Association. From what I've learned from Jackie's blog, she's dealt with many challenges in her life.
But I can tell you ...Jackie was a delight to meet.
Jackie is adorable and we were both so excited when I walked up to her and said "Hi, I'm Debbie of Heart Choices."
Now, you bloggers know what I'm talking about. You feel like you already know the other person because you've read what they share from their heart on their blogs.I know this won't be the last time I get to meet with Jackie.
As I glance through her book, I'm already mentally planning trips I want to take in my own state of Arizona. It's amazing how you can live in a place for 25 years and not take advantage of some of the beautiful and historic places that are close by.
