SPOTLIGHT ON: Jackie Taylor Zortman


How did you get involved in the Authors Supporting Our Troops event?

My Murphy cousin, Lauren Howard, whose husband is a musician, sent me the link because she thought I’d be interested. 


What is your latest release and what genre is it?

“We Are Different Now” is a grief/self-help/inspirational book.

 Cover 300x444

Quick description of it.

Pete died alone beside the river in the pitch black of night after falling 100 feet to the rock-strewn canyon floor from a Colorado mountain ledge.  He was only 21 years old and the apple of his maternal grandmother’s eye. He died instantly from a skull fracture.  Come with me on my journey with death on the mountain.  Discover what has been revealed to us since we lost this young man with the angelic face and who was born possessing an old soul.


Something unique about it.

My book has, unexpectedly, sold to people in all walks of life and to all ages from late teens to the elderly and everyone in between, as well as being sold as a text book.


Links for people to buy it.; &  It can also be bought or ordered in any Barnes & Noble bookstore.  It is also available as a Kindle.
