Jacki Ring is the pen name for a romantic suspense writer who grew up in the Sandhills of Western Nebraska. The first twelve years of her life were spent in the tiny town of Flats. It had a population of four–her parents, her older sister, and herself. Flats consisted of two acres of land, a house, a post office, a shop, and two gas pumps. The post office served as a community hub, selling milk, ice cream, candy, and soda. At election time, it served as the precinct’s polling place. Community news was gathered here, and gossip was spread.
At the age of thirteen her family moved to her grandparent’s ranch. Here, Jacki spent much time riding horses, herding cows, and driving tractors. She had to drive 45 minutes to get to a tiny, regional high school. The family drove almost two hours to go shopping. At night she could clearly see the Milky Way and occasionally the Northern Lights. The viewing was accompanied by the lowing of cattle, the occasional horse’s neigh, and a coyote’s howl.
As an adult Jacki has lived throughout Nebraska, Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado. It is Colorado where she and her family have settled, although she is still a country girl at heart. She loves nothing more than plotting murder and romance and putting these plots on paper. She lives with her husband, daughter, and a feisty feline at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.
