About the Author
Jack Terry has made a modest living by immodestly following his heart's desires, and that includes writing. Born and raised in central Connecticut, Jack attended NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Armed with a prestigious, if slightly impractical, degree in theater he did what most people in his family had done before him: hightailed it to San Francisco. That began a lifestyle lasting more than 20 years which has seen Jack live and work in various places across the country, first while pursuing acting before transitioning into writing, the whole time paying his bills by saying "shaken or stirred?" For five years he spent working on both those skills by living in Key West. During this time he managed to win recognition for his writing, travel the country talking about rum, and most importantly get to learn a little bit about life on an island that's also at the end of the road. Most of Jack's writing has been best described as "slice of life...with a twist." Exploring issues of loss, redemption and love, he is not afraid to push the boundaries of traditional fiction, just a little bit, to create a world that looks just enough like the one the reader is familiar with that the differences, when they appear, do not come with a sudden surprise but rather slip silently through the side door. Currently (Spring 2016) Jack has two novels available for purchase. "Chasing Ghosts" (released in 2010) tells the story of a man so tormented by the loss of a girlfriend that he finds himself becoming lost in time, and it falls to a mysterious woman from a mysterious company to track down the truth and help set him free. "Talk Murder to Me" introduces readers to tricky Dick, an early retiree from a shadowy government job who wakes up one morning to find a dead body floating under his dock and a host of people who want to take credit for the murder.
