'Jacqui Stewart was born in Adelaide, but moved to Perth. Involved in music and drama when young, it wasn't until she lived in the Pilbara during the seventies, and attended a weekend workshop run by Elizabeth Jolley, that she began to take writing seriously and completed a Correspondence Course in Creative Writing.
A late starter, she now writes mainly poetry. Her work has been published in the West Australian, Patterns, Famous Reporter, Studio, The Mozzie, Tamba and various anthologies, including Lines In The Sand, a collection of poetry and prose by Western Australian writers to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Fellowship of Australian Writers group of Western Australia. She also recently wrote a memoir, One Bite Of The Cherry about the two years she and her family spent in Bangkok during the sixties while her husband was involved in a SEATO project.'
