Jacqui Rose is a debut novelist who now lives in London, although she hails from South Yorkshire. Adopted at a young age and always a daydreamer, she felt isolated growing up in a small mining village in South Yorkshire and it was her writing which kept her company. Sent to boarding school as a teenager, it was there she discovered her love for acting and in particular her love of making people laugh. Before taking her exams she was expelled and after a stint in drama school she headed off to London where she was homeless for a short period of times.Jacqui started teaching voluntarily;drama and writing workshops for prisoners, ex-offenders, the homeless and people sufferring from mental health issues. Jacqui's intoduction back to writing was when she began to write and perform stand-up comedy and although this was very short lived it brought back the joy and freedom which writing gave to her, showing her what she'd missed out on for all the years she'd stopped writing.The idea of Taken was born after being in an abusive relationship - once again her writing became her salvation and her freedom.
