Jack Wallen has been many things during his adult life. Among those many things, Jack has been an actor, hair stylist, computer engineer, bike mechanic, radio personality, and of course a writer. Over the past decade Jack has written thousands of technical articles (mostly about the Linux operating system), theatrical scripts for young audiences, as well as thriller, horror, and other forms of fiction. Jack now concentrates on horror, thriller, and fantasy fiction. Jack lives with his incredibly wonderful wife, three step-children, and six (count 'em...six) cats! For his inspiration to begin reading and writing, Jack thanks the ever-incredible Clive Barker for words that words can not describe.

Jack Wallen is a seeker of truth and a writer of words. Although he resides in the unlikely city of Louisville, Kentucky, he likes to think of himself more as an interplanetary soul ... or so he tells the reflection in the mirror. Jack is the author of numerous tales of dark, twisty fiction including the I Zombie series, the Fringe Killer series, Shero, The Nameless Saga, and much more.
I enjoyed Wallen's first novel "A Blade Away" enough to want to read the sequel. There was no disappointment here because "Gothica" is even better. Wallen's writing leans towards prose - lyrical flow and beautiful imagery. "Gothica" is at times shocking and disturbing - I found myself needing to put the book down several times for a breather because my heart was pounding. It is an intense ride from start to finish. This was a fantastic book and I can't wait for the next Fringe Killer novel!
