About the Author:
Jackie was born in England and had a passion for traveling. After traveling the world three times, Jackie settled in New Zealand, married and had her first child. A few years later, Jackie and her family moved to Australia, where Thai was born.
When Thai was nine months old, he was diagnosed with a milk allergy. After the diagnosis, Jackie started educating Thai and the family about his food allergies. When Thai was 18 months old, Jackie turned to books to help with this, but she had trouble finding books that she could use to hold Thai's attention. They all seemed to be a little too long for a young child. This is what motivated Jackie to write her first book and from there she decided to start a children's book series called "My Food Allergy Friends." Jackie wants to help other families and children learn about their food allergies through these educational and fun children's books.
