Author Writes Words of Encouragement

Jackie Photo


Jacqueline Coote, author/artist/illustrator, writes books to encourage women and children.

Her books for mature women, encourage them to follow the dreams they once had, and if they had been discouraged or disillusioned when young, should now go ahead and follow their passions.  Perhaps financial problems, raising a family, divorced or widowed, a woman who has reached maturity can still fulfill her desires.  No one should discourage her.

Jacqueline’s books for children, are an ideal way of teaching them to never be discouraged, to be brave and face what ever comes their way.  Whether it is fear of making new friends, fear of experiencing the inability to complete a task, problems of facing a bully, experiencing loss or perhaps moving and entering a new school, her illustrated books help children to overcome these fears in a delightful way.  Whether the child reads the book themselves or has a parent or guardian read it to them, the messages will come across the pages to help a child overcome obstacles they face along the way.

Jacqueline illustrates all her books and designs her own book covers from paintings she has created in the past and ones she has design for a particular book.

Her books are available in paperback as well as e-book versions.

Stories of Women Who Want To Make A Change

Jacqueline Coote is an artist/author.  Her books are written with the older woman in mind, however, her ideas and concerns are for all women who want to make a change, but are afraid to do so.

Women who have been discouraged or disillusioned in the past, somehow find it more difficult to follow their dreams at a later age. Age is not always the case, as some soon realize, but fear of the unknown and fear of failure come into play at any age.

Jacqueline’s first book, Only 60+ You Go Girl, is a prelude to the subject she writes about in her nine subsequent books.

Available on, in both paperback and Kindle editions.
