JACQUELINE FREIMOR

Award-Winning Short Story Writer

Jacqueline Freimor's first short story, written at age 11 and inspired by a family road trip, was about an evil fast-food franchise that had stolen the hearts and minds of Americans by addicting them to its products. Jacqueline has developed her storytelling and writing skills quite a bit since then, but the thrill of using language to create new worlds has never diminished.


As a voracious young reader of crime and detective stories, Jacqueline soon decided to try her hand at writing her favorite kind of fiction. All that practice paid off, as in 1995, she won first prize in the Unpublished Writers category of the Mystery Writers of America's 50th Anniversary Short Story Competition. Since then, her stories have appeared in both print and online magazines, and two won honorable mention in The Best American Mystery Stories series. Her Derringer Award-nominated story "That Which Is True" was reprinted in The Best Mystery Stories of the Year: 2021, and her story "Here's to New Friends" in The Best American Mystery & Suspense 2022.
