Jacqueline Burke, Author – Songwriting

First, I would like to update you on what has been going on in our World.

The past 6 months, my husband and I have been writing music with Corey Lee Barker, Creative Director at MC1 Nashville Music Publishing. We have had the time of our lives and have enjoyed every single day pursuing our passions in music.

I have not forgotten about writing my fiction, non-fiction, and recipe book series, in fact, I’ve been still working on all of these projects as well. Stay tuned for more updates on those projects.

What can I say, “I love all forms of writing!”

I would love to invite you all to check out our music demo’s which we are pitching on a regular basis. You can find our links to our music here:

We do hope you check us out and we look forward to hearing your thoughts; there is a variety, from Country to Pop, from Rock to Christmas music! We also have 7 new songs that are in for demo production; we look forward to adding these to our catalog as well.

Have a great weekend!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – How It All Started!

When I think back to when I first became interested in writing, it all focused around listening to music. This is really, how it all started!

I also did an extreme amount of reading; books, magazines, short stories, and even jewel case covers of CD’s. I would read, pretty much, anything! As I read, there was always music playing in the background. Some days I would have the radio on or a CD playing, but other times, I would just hear a tune in my head. I would start humming!

Music made me do it!

I found I was at complete peace when I was reading, writing, and doing it all with music playing. Music made it easier for me to visualize. Music helped me to get into a certain mood when writing fiction, but especially when I wrote The Good Vibes Only Roadshow and Love Grandma (recipe book series).

I spent many years in jobs that truly, “just weren’t for me”, but I had to work and support my family. I did what I needed to do at the time. There came a time, while working these jobs, I just couldn’t do it anymore. I needed to be me! In finding me, I played a lot of music and wrote in one journal after another.

Here I am! Music made me do it!

I feel very fortunate to have been able to find myself with music, with reading, and with writing.

I am content with who I am and with who I will continue to be in the future. I am not made of money, but instead I am made out of creativity and peace. To me, that is more valuable!
