Jackie Gamber

Jackie grew up in Michigan, communing with trees when she wasn't writing angsty teenage poetry. Since then, she's become a veteran of the United States Air Force, a mom, and a national award-winning editor and author of genre-bending science fiction, fantasy, horror, and paranormal short stories, novels, and screenplays. She has been a member of Science Fiction Writers of America and Horror Writers Association. She was named honorable mention in L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future Award and is the winner of the Mary Shelley Award for Imaginative Fiction. In addition, during Jackie’s tenure as Executive Editor of Meadowhawk Press, the indie house captured Science Fiction’s Philip K. Dick Award, only the fourth time in history the award has gone to a small press. She is also writer/director of Big Imagine, an indie film studio established to explore her visual fiction as a makeup FX artist and filmmaker; because she believes there’s more than one way to tell a good story.

Jackie believes in the life-altering use of imagination, as both an artistic expression, and as an everyday tool for self-awareness and empowerment.
