Words and language have always held a fascination for Jack Thompson. He spoke English and French as a child and by the age of five reading had become a passion.
Jack is interested in people and improving the human condition, a theme that shows up frequently in his writing.
Jack’s philosophy of writing is simple: “Writing should interest and entertain a reader. It should broaden a reader’s horizons, stimulate his imagination and increase his understanding of the world around him. He may find out something about himself he did not previously realize. It should move him emotionally to cry, or to fear, or to be angry, or to laugh. Perhaps, all of the above. And, most of all, the reader should have fun.”
Jack currently lives in Florida with his wife of twenty-seven years. Besides writing novels, short stories and poetry, he works as a private tutor.
