About Jacquelyn Middleton

Award-winning author Jacquelyn Middleton’s books are “sexy and overflowing with hope” (Hypable) with “…the kind of sweet nothings hopeless romantics die for” (Kirkus Reviews), and “identifiable and emotionally connective characters who readers can’t help but root for.” (BlueInk Review).

Jacquelyn writes love stories for hopeful romantics—‘hopeful’ because her novels are always optimistic and she believes ‘happily ever afters’ are more important now than ever before. But life is messy, relationships are messy, and her books aren’t afraid to go there, too. If you enjoy character and relationship-driven stories about people dealing with the triumphs and disasters we all face, Jacquelyn’s books are for you.

In 2019, she was named BEST CANADIAN AUTHOR at the Toronto Romance Writers ‘Northern Hearts’ Awards for UNTIL THE LAST STAR FADES. Her Christmas in London romance, THE CERTAINTY OF CHANCE, earned a coveted Kirkus starred review and had Entertainment Weekly raving, naming it to their list of the best holiday romances of 2021.

An own voices author, Jacquelyn has dealt with anxiety, panic attacks, and depression all her life, and is dedicated to depicting mental health challenges realistically and empathetically in her novels.

A life-long Maple Leafs fan and Anglophile, Jacquelyn previously worked in television broadcasting and as an award-winning freelance journalist specializing in health and travel. She loves comic cons, London, and theatre, and lives in Toronto with her British husband and Japanese Spitz dog.
