Professional Reviews

The Old Wolf Lady
In this compelling biography, author Joyce Daniels creates a sensitive and humorous portrait of Jackie Day, from her humble beginnings to her active and dedicated eighth decade. Daniels distills countless interviews with Jackie Day, her colleagues and her family into an engaging narrative, peppered with Jackie’s own colorful language, stories, and jokes. I found myself laughing out loud at some of Jackie’s unique phrases and tales. Daniels chooses just the right stories and examples to give readers a multi-dimensional picture of Jackie. Jackie Day comes alive on the page.

In The Old Wolf Lady, Daniels has created an engaging record of an important woman’s life and her contributions to Iowa and women’s history.

-Marjorie Carlson Davis, author of A Little Menagerie and contributor
to Stories From Where We Live: The Great Lakes


Jackie Day
Joyce Daniels, Iowa writer and college professor, writes with humor, admiration, and charm about her uncle’s wife, who is described by others as “a master mechanic for the Republican Party,” “a sparkling woman of uncut realism,” and a woman with “Betty Grable legs.” Daniels shares Jackie-isms, like “Life shouldn’t be a spectator sport,” and “The easiest way to resent your age is to regret the things you haven’t done.”

The Old Wolf Lady inspires us all with its depiction of a woman who used her natural strengths and passions to live fully and to make a difference.

-Suzanne Kelsey, freelance writer, editor, and writing coach
