About Jackie

Jackie Shannon Hollis was raised on the Oregon ranch that her great-grandfather homesteaded, surrounded by wheat fields, four siblings, horses, cows, pigs, sheep, dogs, plenty of cats, various fowl, and even a fawn for a short while.

Jackie’s writing has appeared in a variety of literary magazines including The Sun, Slice Magazine, Rosebud, South Dakota Review, & High Desert Journal. Her memoir, THIS PARTICULAR HAPPINESS: A CHILDLESS LOVE STORY, is forthcoming from Forest Avenue Press (September, 2019).

Jackie lives with her husband in Portland, Oregon in what one friend calls the Tree House, for all the cedars that grow out back.
