Alice A. Jackson’s passion for writing began while she was still in elementary school. Encouraged by three aunts who played a pivotal role during her formative years, Alice bounced around nearly a dozen elementary schools and three high school before working as a long distance telephone operator to pay her way through the University of Tulsa.
She began her journalist career as a television news reporter for the NBC affiliate in Evansville, Indiana, the only woman on the small news staff, and later rising to the role of news director/anchor of the ABC affiliate in Evansville in 1981, one of only three women holding that position among the nation’s top 100 television markets at that time. In 1991, Alice left Evansville to purchase a small radio station in Franklin, Tennessee. After selling the station, she worked for the historic local newspaper, the Review Appeal, which had been published for nearly two centuries. After retiring, from the newspaper business, Alice set her hand to writing her first novel, Good-bye, Gadsden, set in World War II. Her other works include BROKEN CHORD A Music Row Mystery, and her latest novel, Deadline in Dallas.
After the death of her beloved, multiply disabled adopted son, Robert, she embarked on a series of world travels, visiting more than 124 countries, including Tibet, Myanmar (Burma), and a number of nations in Africa and the Middle East.
