About Me

     Hello! I am Lauralee Jacks. I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California with a Bachelor of Arts degree. I recently graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education and a teaching certification. I am a DJ and a small talk show host at the local radio station,105.5 WYTM-FM. 

   I have also published a children's book called Clovers and Fire. For more details about my book, you can look at it here on Amazon. It is an original fairytale that is filled with humor and adventure, but also has a strong moral to the story.

  1. You sound perfect for reviewing my novel, Rebirth in Acadi, but I find no way of connecting with you. Here is some info on both the book and me:

    REBIRTH IN ACADI is the story of a passing African-American named Louise Dennis who in the late twentieth century, determined to enjoy a prejudice-free life while learning more about the post-Civil War duel in which her illustrious antecedent Dr. Albert Bancroft was killed, moves to the Louisiana river road town where the duel occurred. There, she soon finds herself engaged to a racial bigot who, obviously, must remain ignorant of her ethnicity.

    The story -- based on how secrets past and present haunt goings-on of the moment -- is thematically complex. Racism, displacement, and the plight of the disadvantaged, including an unfortunate immigrant, color the journeys of not only Louise but another newcomer to the community, an aging go-getter named Margaret who feels a kinship to the long-departed duelist's wife. She's the one who, also seeking information on the illustrious antecedents involved with the duel, threatens to disrupt Louise's scheme of deception.


    Born and raised in Minnesota, Susan Swanson now lives in a New Orleans condo with her Maine Coon cat. Susan's writing gravitates toward both where she grew up and where she lives now. She has been a church organist, piano accompanist for the Suzuki violin program at the University of Minnesota, and -- at least to her mind -- the consummate wife and mother. She began writing when, as empty nesters, she and her late husband took up residence in a dying community on the River Road in Louisiana, where she became enthralled with the bizarre details of the historic duel on which Rebirth in Acadi is based.
