Meet the Author!

Hi, my name is Jaclyn. I’m a wife, dog mom, and huge Philadelphia sports fan! A few years ago, I was approaching the next decade of life and I decided it was time to do something big on my goal list. For many years, I’ve wanted to REALLY write a children’s book but never took the plunge…until now! I went to Temple University where I received a degree in Early Childhood Education (Go Owls)! While I am not active in the field today, my passion for early childhood education is still there. One of my favorite classes in college was Children’s Literacy, where we learned all the requirements of how to write a children’s book. I fell in love with the concept of becoming an author. While writing a children’s book has always been a goal of mine, I never knew who or what to write about until becoming a dog mom to Cooper.

Cooper is one of a kind. Coop has allowed me to find endless inspiration in his heartwarming antics. As I embarked on the journey of writing my very first children's book, titled "Courageous Cooper," my passion for storytelling and love for my canine companion converged beautifully. Through Cooper's adventures, I aimed to impart the values of bravery, loyalty, and friendship to young readers. Cooper is a dog with a lot of personality and with that comes a lot of emotions…some of which you’ll see in the book! Cooper is loving, sassy, and adventurous but in other moments he can be afraid of every little thing including his own shadow! With each page I wrote, I aimed to captivate the imaginations of children but also celebrate the unwavering courage and spirit of my canine muse. With "Courageous Cooper," I'm not just telling a story; I'm sharing a piece of my heart with the world. Enjoy 🤍
