BioJacky Gray's first career was engineering and after 23 years writing software for telephone exchanges, she spent 15 years teaching children, occasionally introducing them to the delights of mathematics. She lives in the Midlands with her husband and three children, where she enjoys all live entertainment, watches a lot of movies and some great TV shows like Merlin, Robin Hood, Dr Who, Ashes to Ashes and Being Human. She also listens to a lot of Journey and Queen and reads (apologies to the adverb police) voraciously, especially Lee Child, Jodi Picoult, Stephen King, Stephenie Meyer, J.K. Rowling, Preston/Child and Wilbur Smith. But her favourite author will always be the master of history, Bernard Cornwall.

Archer Jacky Gray
Mmm. Shoot an apple off his friend’s head or lose his food, horse and clothes? Some decisions require little thought. Archer is the sort of boy things happen to. Orphaned as a baby, his gifts make him different to other kids. He doesn't understand why he's so much stronger and faster than other boys; why a sword feels so right in his hand; or how every arrow he looses at a target will hit the centre, even if his eyes are closed. At the Beltane ritual, he must fight his friends to see who is most worthy. But his real battle is with an enemy whose callous disrespect for the natural order brings dangerous consequences. Described as "A Knight's Tale" meets "Robin Hood," this medieval-alternate-world is spellbinding. Character-driven fantasy with humour, romance & sprinkles of magic.
New Kid In Town Jacky Gray
Liv, Jude and Kat are greater than the sum of their parts. Separately they are Brainy, Sporty and Arty. Together they are invincible. Until Drop-Dead-Gorgeous Ray wheels up. The intravenous chocolate, hatred of sports and loss of her partner-in-crime have taken their toll on Liv, leaving her flabby, unfit and best-friendless. Add in a wicked tongue, lack of boyfriend, and a mortal enemy determined to destroy her, and you’re pretty much up-to-speed. Liv’s life isn’t a complete pity party: Jude, sporting superstar, and Irish songbird, Kat, have her back. And her front, when it’s not bursting out of a blouse two sizes too small. Described as a pitch-perfect blend of drama and romance for fans of “10 Things I Hate About You” and “Glee,” this young adult story is snappy, eclectic and edgy.
