Jacquelyn Vincenta

Jacquelyn Vincenta has been writing since she was a child. Vincenta graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in English Literature with Honors in Creative Writing, and has made language the center of her career ever since then. Vincenta’s first paid writing job was as a police beat reporter for the Slidell (Louisiana) Daily News, and her current non-fiction job is as blog writer and copywriter for the Prague-based translation company Skrivanek (you can find my articles related to languages and translation at Skrivanek.com). Vincenta’s deepest passion is the natural world, so the presence of her world — Michigan and its waters — has a powerful influence on the stories she immerse herself in. Vincenta writes fiction from her home in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and other borrowed desks when she is on the road.
