About Maquel A Jacob
Maquel A. Jacob (MAJ), is a writer of Gender Shifter Social Sci-Fi with a bit of romance, a touch of gore and much more. Growing up on B rated horror flicks, Star Wars and Harlequin books gave her the idea to blend genres; keeping things more interesting. At the tender age of twelve, she encountered her first Stephen King novel, then moved on to the darker stuff: Clive Barker.
Originally from the Windy City of Chicago, MAJ has been to half the United States, mostly by bus and train. She looks forward to seeing the rest before delving into foreign countries. Writing was always an escape from the harsh streets of the inner city and served her well.
There was a two year stint at The Art Institute studying digital film and video and cosmetology school where she became a certified nail technician. Her passion stems from always wanting to learn new things, because knowledge is power. Words can hold so much meaning and convey the wide spectrum of humanity.
