Sarah-Nicole Danielle Jackson, daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. Samuel R. Jackson, has published her second book, Cyberspace. A book signing will be held at the Barnes and Noble in Hamilton Place on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 6 p.m.

“The book is a sci-fi story called Cyberspace, and it was very fun to write. I'm proud I was able to get it done in just a few months. I feel very accomplished,“ Ms. Jackson said.   

Ms. Jackson is an active member of the Union Hill Missionary Baptist Church, serving in the Youth Usher Ministry, Teen Ministry, Media Ministry and in the Girlscouts.  She is a freshman honor student at Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences, where she is part of the archery team and the Creative Writing Club. She enjoys reading, writing and drawing. 

Over the last few years, she has begun to hone her writing skills. She has embarked on her lifetime passion to become an author, as she pursues her goal of "Reviving Literacy."

In her spare time, she enjoys hanging with friends and enjoying hot chocolate and a frappuccino at one her favorite places, Barnes and Noble.

In her first book, Time to Shine, a group of teenagers solve a murder mystery that happened at their school. Her current book, Cyberspace, is about three girls in a futuristic setting who find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. 

Ms. Jackson is available for signings, school events and community events. For additional information, contact Vivian Jackson at 423-364-1222.
