About the Author

Jacqueline Shortell-McSweeney is a proud member of Sisters in Crime, Women’s National Book Association and Honorary Member of Women Make Movies and Suffolk Bar Association.

Jacqueline Shortell-McSweeney writes only when inspired, or when her Muse, Noreen, stands over her with a metaphorical rolling pin. At other times, she has worked as a producer for Women Make Movies (Where WHY WOMEN STAY was produced and directed.); a video artist at Henry St. Settlement; first union woman grip on the East Coast, and then, as a lawyer, in hopes she could sue some of those responsible for her Me-Too moments in the union. Finally, as an attorney for Women’s Venture Fund, Ms. Shortell-McSweeney worked with women entrepreneurs to help build their businesses.  Now retired to her writing desk, Shortell-McSweeney has been published in eight anthologies, the latest being BEAT GENERATION.
