Cally Jackson grew up in the small country town of Gatton, Australia. After deciding at 17 that a Hollywood acting career was sadly out of reach, Cally turned to a career in communication and marketing.
Cally’s passion for fictional writing first emerged in grade two when she got in trouble for penning her own tale instead of copying directly from a story book as she was supposed to be doing – it was a handwriting exercise, after all.
Cally now lives in Brisbane with her husband, Mark, baby daughter, Mackenzie, and their dog, Lucy. Her first novel, The Big Smoke, was published in October 2012.
(In case you can’t tell, Cally likes talking about herself in third person.)
