Jacqueline Diamond has sold more than 95 novels, including Regency-set historicals, romantic comedy, romantic suspense, mystery, fantasy and science fiction. She currently writes the Safe Harbor Medical miniseries for Harlequin American Romance.

These include zany comedies such as Yours, Mine and Ours, about a nanny who discovers she's caring for the triplets born from her own donated eggs; One Husband Too Many, an offbeat time-travel, and Lady in Disguise, a Regency romp. In all, she's posted about 25 books, with full information at www.jacquelinediamond.com/books.
Born in Menard, Texas, she's the daughter of a country doctor (later a psychiatrist) and a ceramic artist. She grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. The family also lived for a while in Louisville, Kentucky.
After graduating from Brandeis University, Jackie spent a year traveling in Europe on a writing fellowship from Thomas Watson Foundation. She lived for half the year in Florence, Italy; spent three months in French-speaking countries; and traveled for three months.
As an Associated Press reporter and television columnist in Los Angeles, she interviewed hundreds of celebrities, including Michael Caine, Debbie Reynolds, Jon Voight, Dick Van Dyke, Pearl Bailey, Ricardo Montalban, James Garner, Patrick Stewart, Jaclyn Smith, and Richard Dreyfuss.
Despite her career accomplishments, what Jackie values most are her personal achievements. She and her husband of 35 years have two sons, both hardworking young men raised with strong moral values.
Living in Southern California, Jackie is active in the Orange County chapter of Romance Writers of America. She also takes advantage of the weather to pursue her hobby of flower and vegetable gardening.
Jackie says she knew since age five that she wanted to write. Although it took years to sell her first book, she's always earned a living as a writer in one way or another.
