Author Bio


Jacky Howgate


I am 57 years of age and have a 30+year background as a Teacher of Modern Languages (French and German).

I’m originally from the UK, having emigrated in September 2006 with my ( soon to be ex) husband, Graham and children, Adam and Steph.

In 2018 I had a benign brain tumour removed and the past five years have a been a long and difficult road back to wellness. I’ve been involved in two local charitable organisations and in 2021 I formed a ladies’ social swimming and splashing group at Fishies Beach in Mornington.
I’m keen to write a book about my experiences and how I’m now aiming to live my best life!
I’m looking forward to spending time with inspiring local writers!
