Mandy Jackson-Beverly was born in Pyramid Hill, Victoria, Australia—population 419—and grew up around the rugged coastline and rolling hills of Tasmania. Upon moving to England, she discovered the tantalizing London fashion scene and fell in love with the concept of the creative collective. Later in Los Angeles, she found her own creative freedom among the thriving, no-holds-barred visionaries of the music video world.
Mandy has worked as a costume designer and stylist for an impressive array of creative dynamos including photographer Herb Ritts; directors Joel and Ethan Coen, David Fincher, and Julien Temple; and music icons David Bowie, Madonna, and Tina Turner. She taught art and theater in high schools, is a contributor to The Huffington Post, and reviews books for The New York Journal of Books. These days she lives with her family in Ojai, California, and spins stories for her readers’ pleasure as well as her own.
When Mandy’s not writing, teaching, or reading (she has a fascination with Jung), she’s cooking, painting, dancing, or on walkabout—preferably in Italy. She is the author of A Secret Muse, The Devil And The Muse, The Legend of Astridr: Birth, and The Immortal Muse (January 2019).
