USA Today bestselling author Jacquie Biggar loves to write Romantic Suspense novels brimming w/Attitude. 

Jacquie Biggar is a USA Today bestselling author of romance who loves to write about tough, alpha males and strong, contemporary women willing to show their men that true power comes from love. She lives on Vancouver Island with her husband and loves to hear from readers all over the world!

In her own words: “My name is Jacquie Biggar. When I’m not acting like a total klutz I am a wife, mother of one, grandmother, and a butler to my calico cat. My guilty pleasure are reality tv shows like Amazing Race and The Voice. I can be found every Monday night in my armchair plastered to the television laughing at Blake and Adam’s shenanigans. I love to hang at the beach with DH (darling hubby) taking pictures or reading romance novels (what else?). I have a slight Tim Hortons obsession, enjoy gardening, everything pink and talking to my friends.”

I thought I’d share with you the beginning of my love affair with writing.

Normally, procrastination is my enemy. I like to get done whatever it is, as soon as I can, so that I don’t have to worry about it any more.

In school I worked hard to stay in the top ten every year. So when I came down sick with the measles and missed two weeks of grade nine, I was devastated. How was I ever going to catch up? I had less than a week to write a compelling story for Language Arts or get a failing mark.

Angry and frustrated, I sat in our living room, pen and paper in hand, staring at a bright yellow bouquet of cheerful looking daffodils. I wanted to hurl them across the room. It wasn’t fair. Why was I being punished for getting sick?

But then an idea popped into my head. A silly, farcical story. If the teacher wanted an essay, fine, I’d give him one. And so, Count Daffodil, was born. After the first paragraph the words flowed quicker, I could see the scene in my head and needed to get it down on paper. (Sound familiar?) I spent the rest of the day writing, and by the end of the night I had my story.


The next day I turned it in and immediately felt ill all over again. It was dumb. The teacher was going to hate it. I’d be a laughing stock. Funny how easy you can build something up to catastrophic proportions when you lack self-confidence.

We had to wait two weeks for the results. I was on tenterhooks the entire time. Sure that my mom would blow a gasket because I’d goofed instead of giving it my best shot.

Then came the big day.

I was scared to look. Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore and turned to the last page. These were my teacher’s words:

I’m glad I didn’t read this at night. It’s been a while since I was so enthralled with a story. Very professionally done. The suspense, the ending, the style was excellent. I think I’ll read it to the other classes. Very impressive.

Not only did he read it to the other grade nines, he read it over the intercom to the entire school!

Because of Mr. Thomas and a hapless bouquet of sunny daffodils, a writer was born.

Jacquie’s first book, Tidal Falls, a romantic suspense novel about second chances, released September of 2014.

    1. that’s what keeps me writing, 🙂
      So grateful for all the support in the writing community, I want everyone over for Christmas, lol. Seriously though, that’s the best part, it’s one big extended family.


  1. Our lives seem to run a bit parallel. I have a supportive DH of 33 years, am a mom and grandma, spent 30+ years as a legal secretary always wanting to write something else. Now I’m writing something else and hoping to publish. It’s quite a ride! Thanks for following my blog.

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog. Wishing you much success as you pursue your dream of writing. I took the plunge two years ago and it’s been quite a learning curve, but also extremely satisfying. I’ll visit again and hope you drop by From the Pen of Mae Clair again. Always great to support another author! 🙂


          1. Awww, thanks so much! I really appreciate your support as well. My debut novel was written long ago and I have learned so much from you on how to be a better novelist. You know, weaving romance into the plot without being too obvious. lol! Sure, we’ll swap addresses. 🙂

  3. What an inspiring story, Jacquie. As a retired teacher, I’m so glad that a teacher caught you and inspired you to write. BTW, you look way too young to be a grandma! Have a great weekend. 🙂
