Jacqueline Lunn was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia and ever since has been trying to stop freckles spreading across her face. She attended The University of Queensland where she somehow completed an Arts degree and now wishes she worked harder. Not for better marks, but for the pure joy of knowledge.
She began her journalism career in Sydney and has worked as a features writer and editor for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian and marie claire magazine. She has lived in London where she worked making coffee and tea in a secret high rollers casino (don’t ask) in Kensington and briefly in New York where she freelanced (not particularly successfully, hence the length of stay).
She lives in Sydney with her husband, three children and a dog. She currently is writing a weekly column in The Sydney Morning Herald and is working on her second novel. She loves storytelling and knows she is extremely lucky to sit down, stare out a window, wonder about people who aren’t real and write.
Her first novel will be released by Random House (Vintage) in early 2011.
