Welcome to the official website for author J.R. Hampton, “an intelligent writer whose characters jump off the page with their unusual lives and even stranger missions…” (D.B. Finnegan). Described as a must-read author for anyone wanting twisted plots laced with poison and humor, she’s inspired in equal parts by her previously published work in psychology, and her fascination with all things forensic.
Jacqueline Hampton doesn’t believe in coincidence. When the former biochemist turned techie discovered she’d worked side-by-side with not one, but two killers, she started writing to remind people that what can’t happen here, just might.
Selected to participate in the 2017 juried Squaw Valley Community of Writers fiction workshop, Jacqueline is also an award-winning ghostwriter. Her project, Back from the Brink Too: Supporting Your Loved Ones Overcoming Depression received the 2009 SANE Australia Book of the Year award.
She recently completed the manuscript for a new thriller, Mackenzie Kady Needs a Reason.
