Jackie Craven became fascinated by architecture when she bought her first Victorian house. Five houses and 25 years later, she continues to write books and articles about home design, historic preservation, famous buildings, and cultural travel.
Jackie practically lives on the Web. She writes about house styles and architecture trends for About.com and other publications, posts excerpts from her travel features at Distant Dwellings, writes short stories and poetry for literary journals, and hangs out on Facebook and Twitter.

From the New York Times:
The New York Times says Jackie Craven "has become one of the Internet's reigning authorities on buildings and architecture, a resource for people who want to know about plumbing, Frank Gehry or the Taj Mahal."

"A building is so much more than wood, nails, bricks, and mortar. Join me as we explore the ideas and aspirations that shape the ways we build. And be sure to stop by our discussion forum to ask questions and share ideas!"
