Jaycie Morrison is a second generation native Dallasite who is also in love with Colorado and now splits her time between the two. As a youngster, she and her friends entertained themselves making up and acting out stories featuring characters from popular TV shows or favorite bands—lots of action and a little romance even then! A voracious reader, she always wondered what it would be like to write a book and found that once she started, it was almost impossible to stop. In her debut novel, Basic Training of the Heart, she combines her love of the written word and of history. The newest release, Heart's Orders, continues the series but can also be read as a standalone story. When she's not writing, Jayice may be hiking, experimenting with gluten free cooking, or pretending to be a rock star.
