My name is Jacqueline L. Smith I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I moved to Boston, Massachusetts, after I turned eighteen years old. I'm a mother of five children who are older now. I'm also an author who continued to write over the years. I've written numerous books about real-life issues. The books are inspirational and motivational for people of all ages, and no matter whats going on in life, reading these books can help anyone. So much happens in real-life every day, and sharing what I know and seen or experienced in life; is the knowledge that can be beneficial to anyone who wants to improve their situation, to become a better person in society. Usually, to move forward to do anything in life will be easier if understanding what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, what makes life more understandable is extremely important. So, writing helped me a lot to overcome what is going on in life. The books I've written are True Stories of Real Life Experiences: Rising Above it All, Public Schools Have Stories Too! Red Leaves and Life is Pieces of a Puzzle. Read them all, or share these books with a family member or a friend who will be interested in learning more about these books, they're also educational. Lastly, the books are especially great for young people being born and raised in today's society, and another book is coming soon, so check periodically to see when it's available.
