About Jack

  • After 46 years in publishing (technical book-selling) in South Africa (Juta's Bookshops) Cape Town, in Atlanta, and at NYU (New York City) I am now the author of The Journal of Rudd (1897 - 1903) [JoR] and screenplay adaptation of the ms.

    * A technical writer and editor for many years, as I was writing the manuscript, a little voice deep inside, kept niggling - "There's a movie in this... there's a movie..." Now? Now I truly believe there is a movie in the Journal of Rudd.

    * A near-death experiencer [NDEr] {1972) I use my insight to bring a metaphysical twist to the screenplay.

    * Published regularly a monthly computer book review column in Computer Shopper, then Computer Monthly magazines.

    * Technical magazine articles led directly to technical writing for 22 years.

    * Attaining B.A. Creative Writing has led to historical fiction, and The Journal of Rudd.
