Jacqueline Greer Graham is a Canadian citizen who was born in Montserrat, British West Indies.
The corona virus global pandemic reminded her how quickly life can change, and even end, and how important it is to capture her rich experiences for the benefit of her children, and others. So, she wrote her memoir, Almost Full Circle: From Montserrat to Canada and Back-ish. It chronicles her journey from a small village in Montserrat to Canada and her journey home after a volcano destroyed her village.
Her book won the 2022-2023 Reader Views Literary Awards Gold Medal Award in the Memoir/Autobiography/Biography category, as well as the 2023 Readers' Favorite Literary Awards Gold Medal Award in the Non-Fiction — Environment category. It has also been on Amazon's Best Seller list.
Moda and the Masquerades: The Rhythm Plays On, is her second book. It’s a fictional story, inspired by true events that occurred in the eighteenth century, as well as her love for Masquerades.
Jacqueline is passionate about sharing her stories, and holds the opinion that you should write/record/share yours, too, even if you don’t publish them. She believes that when we experience other cultures, and perspectives, we all benefit; we’re more empathetic; more tolerant; more enlightened.
Jacqueline lives in Ontario, Canada, and has two children—Gabrielle and Lemuel.
Jacqueline's personal guiding principles are: lead, love, laugh, and live with gratitude.
"...Love your neighbour as yourself" (Matthew 22:39), implies that you already love yourself. The challenge is to love your neighbour in the same way. Jacqueline accepts the challenge.
