Taryn Chase Jackson’s writing has been published in Southern Living, Guide to Phone Apps magazine, The Laurel of Asheville, The Roanoke Times, the New River Voice, and the Chautauquan Daily. She has edited for AdventureKEEN, Better Homes and Gardens, Brevity magazine, and conducted workshops on social media for small businesses and nonprofits.
Her first book, Images of America: Weaverville, was a pictorial history co-authored with her husband, Tim, that was released by Arcadia Publishing in September 2015.
In 2005, Taryn earned her MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Goucher College and now works as a grant writer for Communication Mark. In 1997, she attended the Summer Publishing Institute at New York University.
Taryn was born in Western New York but lives just north of Asheville, North Carolina, with her husband, teenage daughter, two dogs, a cat, and a rabbit. She’s a singer with the Asheville Choral Society and the small ensemble known as Tempus—and it’s also pretty likely that she’ll kick your butt at Scrabble.
