ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
But over the years the we have especially enjoyed writing for children and young people! This includes our award-winning TRAILBLAZER series, historical fiction about great Christian heroes and heroines for young people ages 8-12, and the four-volume HERO TALES: A Family Treasury of True Stories from the Lives of Great Christians, and the companion book, Heroes in Black History.
Somewhere along the way, our own children grew up! Son Julian is Director of Experience Design for the Alder Planetarium in Chicago where he “provides the experience of exploring space” for visitors. He has two sons, Liam Isaac and Elijah David. Daughter Rachel graduated from Eastern Mennonite University and after working in the field of rape-crisis prevention went on to earn a Masters Degree in counseling from the University of Illinois. She is now a counselor at “Uni High School” in Champaign, Illinois. She is the loving mother of Havah Noelle (our first grandchild!) and Noah Zion, our youngest grandchild. The Jackson family also includes a Cambodian foster daughter, Samen Sang, who has four children.
We live in Evanston, Illinois, where for twenty-seven years we were part of Reba Place Church, a Christian church community. We are now members of a multi-racial congregation in the Chicago area.
ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of Derailed, go HERE.
This is the 2nd book in the Windy City Neighbors series, and every bit as fun and exciting as the first! If you read the first book, Grounded, you may have been left with some questions...you'll find the answers in Derailed, if you didn't read the 1st book, you'll be fine!
Derailed is kind of like reading the flip side of Grounded, you get to 'hear' the other side of the story, this is a parallel book, I've never before read a series like this, but I found myself really enjoying it, it's not often that you get a chance to see the other side of the story!
A great book with a unique twist!
