Who Is L.R. Jackson?
L.R. Jackson was born and raised on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. She’s a fun and spontaneous Gemini who has an addiction for wings and a passion for food. By day, she works in Corporate America and by night, she dreams of Alpha Males and Romance, with her usual touch of suspense.
Writing has been a passion of hers since she was a little girl and she always knew that one day she would share her stories with the world when the time was right. Life got in the way and her dream of writing was put on hold while she graduated from college and became a Mom. But now, over 25 years later, she can proudly say that she’s fulfilled her dream of becoming a published author. She was recently nominated by the AAMBC Urban Author of the year, listed as the Top 100 Authors in 2017 by UBAWA and her stories have reached other countries, earning her an international sales platform.
When she’s not playing chauffeur to her teenaged daughter, she can be found reading, cooking, traveling, and of course writing. She has a huge appreciation for her readers and loves to hear from them.
Get Caught Reading
This book touches on the many stereo-types there are in America. Although these are made up characters and this is a work of fiction, there are actual people who share the same views as the characters do in this story.
We live in a diverse world. A world where people come from different backgrounds, have different views, and different skin tones. That’s why it’s supposed to be the land of the free isn’t it? A land where everyone is supposed to have endless opportunities, a land where you’re supposed to be free to live however you want, and free to express your opinion without judgement?
America is called the Land of the Free but it only seems to apply to those who adhere to the standards that are considered acceptable to society. What happens when you’re discriminated against because of the color of your skin? Or you’re criticized because you practice a different religion? What if you’re in a same sex relationship? Are you really free to be you? Or do you pretend to be someone you’re not, in a country that isn’t really free at all?
