Author Jackie Adams

  • Jackie Adams

    Jackie Adams started writing for LA Magazine during her internship in 2012. She now covers all things literary in Los Angeles, including book releases and readings, and often says that authors are her rockstars. She graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a degree in journalism, and has written for a variety of regional and luxury magazines including LA Weekly, Acura Style, Laguna Beach, Montage, and Bespoke. Born and raised in Southern California she has a deep love for the beach, and with any luck at this moment she is shoeless with her toes in the sand writing her next piece.
