Jacqueline Leigh is a two-time published, award-winning children’s author. Her first book, TIME FOR BED WITH FORD AND RED was released in the summer of 2017. Her second book, THE SPILL, was released in the summer of 2018 and was awarded with a Moonbeam Children’s Book Award for Best Picture Book in the Preschool Category.
Leigh raised in North Georgia; where her childhood was filled with scraped knees, rope swings and sticky Southern nights. Her dream of becoming a writer began at a young age when her mother presented her with a journal and a pen. The daily ritual of writing turned into a realistic passion as she got older. In 2003, Jacqueline attended Valdosta State University in South Georgia, where she studied creative writing and Journalism.
