Alice A. Jackson


Alice A. Jackson’s passion for writing began while she was still in elementary school. Encouraged by three aunts who played a pivotal role during her formative years, Alice bounced around nearly a dozen elementary schools and three high school before working as a long distance telephone operator to pay her way through the University of Tulsa.

She began her journalist career as a television news reporter for the NBC affiliate in Evansville, Indiana, the only woman on the small news staff, and later rising to the role of news director/anchor of the ABC affiliate in Evansville in 1981, one of only three women holding that position among the nation’s top 100 television markets at that time. In 1991, Alice left Evansville to purchase a small radio station in Franklin, Tennessee. After selling the station, she worked for the historic local newspaper, the Review Appeal, which had been published for nearly two centuries. After retiring, from the newspaper business, Alice set her hand to writing her first novel, Good-bye, Gadsden, set in World War II.  Her other works include BROKEN CHORD A Music Row Mystery, and her latest novel, Deadline in Dallas.

After the death of her beloved, multiply disabled adopted son, Robert, she embarked on a series of world travels, visiting more than 124 countries, including Tibet, Myanmar (Burma), and a number of nations in Africa and the Middle East.

Deadline in Dallas



Christo rarely raised his voice. It was a discipline he taught himself many years before, after reading about an American president who admonished his fellow countrymen to speak softly and carry a big stick. Such counsel appealed to his pragmatic nature.

He had been courted by the Dallas businessmen’s group since making a subtle inquiry about the availability of dilapidated warehouse space. The mayor’s office of economic development was the first to respond. The net result: lucrative incentives, making the expansion of his operations into the Texas city a reality, and draping his operations with a cloak of legitimacy.

Christo bounded up the curving, marble stairway and down the veranda hallway overlooking the vast tiled foyer below. He pushed one door open and walked across the expansive bedroom to the exquisite reflection smiling at him in the large mirror. He bent and brushed his lips against the porcelain skin of one bared shoulder and felt the familiar rush of pride and lust. She never failed to take his breath away. He whispered in her ear, “Bette, my love. We leave for Dallas within the hour.”


A piece of genius… a mixture of fun, deep quality, and suspense. Alice A Jackson wrote words that really touched me. I’m a business woman at heart, so books with a blend of business always have a key to my heart, and this was no different, it was so beautifully crafted I just couldn’t get enough of it.

Success breeds passion.
Passion breeds obsession.
Obsession breeds homicide.
