Elaine Jackson

<p>Author of &#39;The Journey and Other Short Stories&#39; and &#39;The Methuselah Paradox&#39;, Elaine Jackson (writing as EJ Jackson) studied creative writing with Faber Academy and &nbsp;editing and screenwriting with The Writer&#39;s Workshop. She also has the singular distinction of being the founder of the only official appreciation society for &#39;The Hitch Hiker&#39;s Guide to the Galaxy&#39;, ZZ9, which she started in 1980 and which is still going strong today.&nbsp;</p><p>Elaine lives in Surrey, in the United Kingdom, with her husband and son, and is a voracious reader. Her first brush with science fiction was &#39;Star Trek&#39;, which led her to creating a local discussion group in her home town of Aldershot in her late teens.&nbsp;She was soon editing newsletters and fanzines, and has also been known to illustrate - although these days she prefers to leave the artwork to the professionals!&nbsp;</p><p>Elaine is proud to be an author member of the Alliance of Independent Authors.</p><p></p>
