Jacalyn S. Burke was born in London, formerly educated in Wales, emigrated to the United States, and is now resident in SW France – where she runs The Writers’ Alchemy.

Previous to this she had worked for 25-years in the service industry. A career choice that began as a means to put herself through University, but that would become a way of life. This proved to be a powerful learning experience of hard knocks.

“When a person works as a security guard, a shop assistant, a domestic cleaner or as a nanny, (I did all four) one develops humility because there is no choice. The work is low-paid, often monotonous and the worker is mostly invisible to the community they serve.

But these vocations afforded me a phenomenal vantage point into the lives of others: the wealthy, the economically challenged and those in-between. This was invaluable to my personal growth. I literally had to work through every sabotage program, self-depreciation trait and socio-economic hinderance until I got myself into a position of power.”

Through self-education, and by utilizing various self-enhancement techniques Jacalyn was able to leave her homeland and self-sponsor a U.S. citizenship path. It was not easy, but she was ultimately successful. A few years later, she would become a published author. Her book The Nanny Time Bomb, an expose into the failings of an unlicensed childcare industry, would be reviewed in the New York Times. And she would go on to start a successful juvenile company called Baby Does NYC.

Jacalyn continued to learn and self-improve. She devoted her spare time to better understanding the nature of reality. She studied spiritual, religious, and esoteric works and organizations dedicated to certain mysteries. A massive body of knowledge had built up – however, the changes jacalyn knew were possible were not as forthcoming nor as seismic.
