2020 Interview: Jacqueline Terrill

Jacqueline Terrill: I'm from Hermitage, and I went to Hickory High School, Shenango Valley School of Business, I attended Gannon University for Marketing, and Penn State Shenango Slackwriters Group, and was a member of Penn Writers. I'm now a member of Mystery Authors of America.

What is your favorite vacation spot?

My favorite vacation spot is Chincoteague Island, Virginia.

Do you have pets?

I have two pets - Cream is an Alaskian Malimute, and Oliver is my cat - I call him the bachelor because I keep him inside the house.  He doesn't mind if we go out of town, he likes to be on his own.

What is your favorite color and what do you like about it?

My favorite color is red, and what I like about that color is that it's bold, and vibrant.

What was your favorite book as a child?

I liked the Hardy Boys - Nancy Drew mystery books

What music genre/singer/band is your go-to for a bad day? For working? 

What is my favorite music for a bad day?  I love the eighties music. Such great memories, and fun times.

Do you re-read books? If so, is there one in particular?

If I would re-read a book it would be Sycamore Row.  I just loved the story. I have a few favorite Authors, and John Grisham is one of them.

Are you an introvert, extravert, or ambivert?

I'm an ambivert - Sometimes I like no noise at all when I'm writing that could distract me. I'm not a loud mouth, and I can be very quiet. But, when I want to say something, and make a point, I'll take the time and speak up. I used to be just an introvert, but I grew-up, and am not afraid to say what I'm thinking.

Does pineapple go on pizza?

You bet, add some bacon bits on that pizza too!  I love any pizza. I'm Italian, and have a recipe book that has my families home-made sauce recipe inside of the book.

What was your first job?

My first job was being a waitress in the Shenango Valley Mall.

What is your favorite down-time activity?

My favorite down-time activity is swimming in the pool this summer with my grandchildren. Having outdoor barbeques, and spending time with the kids. 

Do you have a favorite motto or quote that applies to your own life?

 Writing is a gift by creating a blank page, and using all five senses. A canvas of artwork and words that builds reactions to your story. A novel that you want readers to engage in and not want to put down to the last page.

What is one thing you’ve learned through experience that you’d love to pass along to others?

One thing that I'd like to pass along to others?  A legacy
