About Jack Kardiac
Jack Kardiac was born in Siloam Springs, Arkansas yet was raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he was fed a steady diet of comic books, Twilight Zone episodes and Alfred Hitchcock paperbacks. He watches Die Hard every Christmas and Peter Jackson’s King Kong once every summer. In reality, he likes to make people think, laugh, and change the world for the better. When he writes, he enjoys having everyday people desperately running for their lives. Preferably from a giant monster of some sort.
Jack currently lives in the remote jungles of Indonesia where he teaches Creative Writing to young, impressionable minds.
And yes, he has his very own clone.
