Hi there and welcome to Undertones, a humble little writing niche I am carving out in the big, wide blogosphere. My name is Jackie. I live in Calgary, Alberta but grew up on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I read voraciously, write obsessively, and explore the great outdoors frequently. I also possess an impressive, if not slightly off-putting, ability to out eat most folks at the dinner table. I love dogs to a fanatical degree and like to surround myself with creative and quality people, who I am fortunate enough to call my friends. This will be a forum for airing confessions, fostering creativity, sharing experiences, and indulging in humor. Overall, my hope is that it will be a gathering place for positivity and some entertaining reads. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy!
