Jack writes his own songs, and on February 3, 2016, Jack released his first single “Wild about You!” which is available on CD Baby, iTunes, and Amazon. New recordings will be available soon!
As an Author Jack began with songwriting and poetry. His poems have been published in Casandra a collection of Poems. He then had received ideas for Children’s books and later Novels. The ideas for joke books was inspired from a short stint as a Stand-up Comedian, after taking a comedy class at Governors Comedy Club. The Children’s books “Are there Monsters in My Closet?” surely inspired by his own childhood shenanigans, based the idea of his nieces in nephew doing those same sort of hijinks. The other books of fiction were things Jack had wanted to try and experiment with. Every different form is an experiment in creativity. There are new books in the works, so keep checking back on this website to see what’s new! You can also sign up on the email list to get the news that way too.
