Angelica R. Jackson, in keeping with her scattered Gemini nature, has published articles on gardening, natural history, web design, travel, hiking, and local history. Other interests include pets, reading, green living, and cooking for food allergies (the latter not necessarily by choice, but she's come to terms with it). Ongoing projects include short fiction, poetry, novels, art photography, and children's picture books.

In 2012, she started Pens for Paws Auction, which features critiques and swag from agents and authors to raise money for a no-kill, cage-free cat sanctuary where she volunteers, Fat Kitty City. She's also been involved with capturing the restoration efforts for Preston Castle (formerly the Preston School of Industry) in photographs and can sometimes be found haunting its hallways.

An incurable joiner, she is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (where she serves as Illustrator Coordinator for her local chapter), and former member of the group blog Operation Awesome, and the collection of 2015 debut authors known as The Fearless Fifteeners.

She shares a home in California's Gold Country with a husband, two rescued Griffon Fauve de Bretagne sisters, a cat nearly as large as the dogs, and far too many books (if that's even possible).
