Jacalyn S Burke

Jacalyn S. Burke, a British-American writer, entrepreneur and artist, moved to the US in 2002 to document the emerging Street Art scene in New York City. For the next fifteen years she worked as a tutor, a governess/nanny, an artist, a tech start up founder and a commercial artist.

In 2015, Praeger (now Bloomsbury) published Jacalyn’s non-fiction work, The Nanny Time Bomb – Navigating the Crisis in Child Care. The book was based upon Jacalyn’s experiences working for Manhattan’s 1% and was reviewed by The New York Times, in the ‘Wealth Matters’ weekly column.


Through her work as an artist Jacalyn self-sponsored an immigration path, becoming a US citizen in 2017, as “an alien of extraordinary ability.”

In 2018 Jacalyn relocated to SW France to realize a long-held dream of writing fulltime. Along with her partner Kate, she began to renovate an 18th Century farmhouse and the land about it. During this time she began two novels: The Custodians and Wall Street Diva as well as a non-fiction projects. During the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, Jacalyn continued to write and all book projects were completed in the Fall of 2022.

Jacalyn is a graduate of Middlesex University, the Morris School of Journalism and the School of Visual Arts.
