J. E. Gaulton is an avid genealogist and writer. She is a member of The Fellowship of Australian Writers Inc. and was a member of the Northern Beaches Writers Group (NBWG). Once a contributing author for the T-Zero Ezine (Writers Village University) she used to create a segment called ‘Spotlight’. Other publishing credits include ‘A Travel Story,’ set in Egypt published in T-Zero and a short story entitled ‘The Instructions,’ published in an anthology called Fearsome Engine by the NBWG. She also contributed the first and last chapter to an episodic book entitled ‘Fractured’ by the Port Macquarie Hastings Branch of the The Fellowship of Australian Writers Inc.
She has always been interested in the First World War, and upon discovering that no less than three of her ancestors had fought in it, she was inspired to use her passion for family research as material for a novel. Entitled ‘Our Tom’, the book combines history and fiction, shaped in part by connecting with her ancestors through the act of writing. She is currently researching her second novel. She lives in the Port Macquarie, Australia, with her husband.
