C. L. Jackson lives in Jackson, Mississippi, and is the author of Deserving Grace (2019) and Finding His Treasure (2020). She loves being a southern belle, and on occasion, clutching her pearls. She is a romantic at heart so stepping into writing the next generation of romance novels was second nature for her. Exploring the beauty of her home state of Mississippi, its capital city and surrounding landscapes, was and is a true act of love for this Southern Belle. Local readers will immediately recognize the beauty of areas like downtown Jackson, the Historic Fondren District, or the serene country landscapes of the city of Pocahontas. New readers may be able to see Mississippi in a new light and through the eyes of something they may not be familiar with — a Black Southern Belle.
