I'm so glad you found me!  

Now that you're here, go to the ABOUT page (see above)  to hear me read from my debut novel, 

Ms. Murphy's Makeover,

"a funny, yet poignant tale of betrayal, resilience, and second chances"  

starring Charlotte Murphy, a trusting wife, loving mother, and dedicated high-school English teacher.  She suspects that her husband is cheating when he loses his wedding ring.  

Charlotte's story alternates with first-person commentary from her student and close observer, Valerie Martin. Valerie, a serious student, faces not being able to graduate due to allegedly forged scores. Meanwhile, Charlotte's life is complicated by romantic attention from the school's dean, who has a hidden agenda. Whom can she trust?  



 No, this isn't me.

No, this isn't me.

Jacqueline Goldstein here!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I'm Jacqueline Grandsire Goldstein, but most people call me Jackie - or Jacqui - pronounced the same way, of course.  I was born in the Bronx, New York, where I taught high school English. My novel, MS. MURPHY'S MAKEOVER,  is about a teacher who undergoes a sea change after a cosmetic makeover. Of course I had to research the experience! See "Ms. Jacqui"s Makeover in my blog, Tomorrow Beckons.
