Jacquotte was an avid reader as a child. Her favorite books were Tolkien's Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy, which she finished at the age of eight. As a teenager, she created adventure stories for high fantasy role-playing games.

She was a high school spelling champion and took a few writing classes in college, but she didn't write real fiction until joining an online group in her early 30s. She learned oodles in the group, honed her skills, wrote countless critiques, and won a few contests.

Jacquotte was particularly influenced by Jack Bickham, a brilliant American professor and writer of westerns (The 38 Most Common Fiction Writing Mistakes [1972], Scene & Structure: How to construct fiction with scene-by-scene flow, logic and readability [1993]).

Jacquotte published nine short stories in the genres of horror and erotic: five in various paying publications and four self-published, then spent 15 years from 2000 to 2015 writing her five epic fantasy novels.

She currently lives a simple life working remotely, avoiding the noisy, dirty human world. When she isn't working, she enjoys video games, cycling, hypnosis, and Tumblr.

Jacquotte co-writes a game blog with Si1verange1, (Kitty Kitty Boom Boom) which has seen over 300,000 views.

Si1verange1's parents encouraged her with art as a child, gifting her with paints and books. Her favorite artist was Yves Tanguy. She was later a National Merit Scholar and graduated with a B.S. in Biology, but preferred brushes over beakers.

In college, Si1verange1 focused on watercolors of spiritual visions and made trips to many major museums on the east coast of the U.S., including the Salvador Dali museum in St. Petersburg. After graduation, Si1verange1 painted in her free time while working a job.

After years of effort, she exhibited her oil paintings in Chapel Hill, NC; Mood Swings salon in Tempe, AZ; Golden Pacific Arts in San Diego; and Halo Boutique in Tempe, AZ. Si1verange1 later turned to digital art and created book covers for J.F.Kline's self-publishing, and the now-defunct Freaky Fountain Press.

Today she continues to create symbolic, metaphorical, airy angel art influenced by Michael Parkes. She recently added a Certificate of Web Design to her resume. She likes Spanish, Javascript, and tinkering endlessly with HTML5 and CSS3. She uses Dreamweaver to develop code.
