About Jacki

Descended from a long line of storytellers, Jacki spins adventures filled with heart-pounding, danger, intrigue, and romance. 

 GRAYCE WALTERS, her contemporary romantic suspense series, which chronicles the adventures of a Seattle animal acupuncturist, was an Editor’s Selection by USA Today.

Set in Seattle, Washington, Jacki’s hometown, the Grayce Walters novels frequently feature military heroes and heroines battling the threat of terrorism as a tribute to human and canine service members. She also incorporates many of the city’s unique and colorful locations into her stories, and her volunteer work with Seattle’s homeless shelters inspired one of her main characters. Delecki’s two Golden Labs, Gus and Talley, were her constant companions. Their years of devotion and intuition influenced her to write dogs as main characters alongside her strong heroines.

The CODE BREAKERS, Jacki’s Regency romantic suspense series, is set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. Many of the storylines are inspired by factual events and fascinating details Jacki discovers while researching this period in history, which infuses her emotionally compelling stories of honor, passion and loyalty with vivid, authentic detailing. 

Jacki’s stories reflect her lifelong love affair with the arts and history. At a young age, she trained as a jazz singer and dancer. She has performed many acting roles with the Seattle Opera Company and Pacific Northwest Ballet. Her travels to London and Paris ignited her passion for the Regency era.
