Neta Jackson is an American author of fiction. She was born in 1944. She writes novels that are primarily historical and Christian fiction and she also writes nonfiction books that are frequently for children or young adults.

Jackson has been all over the United States as the daughter of a principal of a Christian school. Her family eventually settled down in Seattle. As a child, she always read a lot and wrote a story in her senior year of high school about a mountain lion that won her the first place and reward prize in a Scholastic Magazine contest. She spent it on a typewriter.

She has certainly written quite a bit since winning that contest and has published a prolific amount of books and several series. Neta Jackson is the author of the Yada Yada Prayer Group series, which has seven books and a boxed series that came out for readers, as well as the Trailblazer series with Dave Jackson. The first book in the series is called Kidnapped by River Rats and was followed up with The Queen’s Smuggler.

Her husband is fellow writer Dave Jackson. They do frequently write and work on books together, such as their popular Trailblazer series. There are forty books in this series. They also composed the Secret Adventures series together. There are four books in this series, from Shrug to Snap to Snag to Spin. The married couple worked on the Windy City Neighbors series together, which has five books in it, starting with Grounded and ending with Snowmageddon.

Jackson first became a published author in 1983 with the publication of her nonfiction novel New Way to Live. She has had several novels published since then, including SouledOut Sisters which includes Stand by Me and Come to the Table. Her novels include Lucy Come Home (released in 2012 and co-authored with her husband) and has been featured in the Pet Parables, Volume 1 collection in 2004.

She has written five picture books for children. This includes the 1991 book The Cat Who Smelled Like Cabbage and the 2004 picture book Grandma Aggie and the Bless-You Bike Ride.

Neta Jackson has also specialized in a number of non-fiction novels. Her first was released in 1983 and was followed a year later by the book Building Christian Relationships. She wrote several other nonfiction books, the majority of them being composed with her husband Dave Jackson as well as other authors such as Steve Wilke. Her most recent nonfiction book was titled Fear Not and was released in 2014.

Kidnapped by River Rats is the first book in the Trailblazer series authored by Neta and Dave Jackson. It is a series that is supposed to be set for young readers in the age eight to twelve range; essentially the young adult genre. The series was designed with the desire to introduce children to Christian heroes from the past through adventure stories from throughout history that may or may not be loosely embellished (it’s historical fiction, after all!).

The setting is the early nineteenth century and the brother and sister pair of Amy and Jack have arrived in London. They’ve come to the busy city to search for their uncle together. But they don’t have a whole lot of resources and when they find themselves in the city but can’t locate him, they’ve run out of food, money, and anywhere to stay. they have nowhere to turn but they have little chance of tracking down their relative as they don’t even know where he lives and he could be anywhere.

London can be really dangerous if you are young and vulnerable, and it’s risky even for adults to live on the harsh streets of London. Not to mention that they are trying to get to find their relative so they can live somewhere better, but here on the streets the very worst of society festers. The city is primed to take advantage of them, and they’re scared. Society has also become desensitized to the homeless and the poor and the disenfranchised.

The two are scared and they really want to find their uncle. But they have no way of doing so. One day a group of people approaches them on the street saying they are from a group called the Salvation Army. Jack and Amy are scared, but they are also curious because these people seem different from the scary people on the street.

The General and Catherine Booth seem nice, but can they really be trusted? And what do they do when they are being pursued by scary men? Pick up this exciting novel and find out!

The Queen’s Smuggler is the second book in the Trailblazer series. This book features the main character of Sarah Poyntz. She is the daughter of a merchant who runs a very successful English shopping business from Belgium in the sixteenth century. But he is also very interested in the ideas of a condemned outlaw who fled England for refusing to stop translating the Bible into English for the purposes of the people being able to read the Word of God in their own language themselves.

The Poyntz family also believes in this, but everything starts to go left when Tyndale is at last captured and put into prison. When this happens, it quickly becomes clear that Sarah is the only chance they have at saving his life at all. They only have one plan to carry out; to try and get the copy of the New Testament translated by Tyndale into Queen Anne’s hands. She is the wife of the king and could order for his life to be spared if she wished.

That’s all well and good, but if she fails then Tyndale will die. And if she fails to do it her family will also be in danger if anyone at all finds out that they were connected. She doesn’t know whether she’s going to be able to go through with it, but she has to if she wants to try and save Tyndale’s life. Can she do it or will it fail? Pick up The Queen’s Smuggler to find out!
