Ask Jack

I’ve been getting a lot of fan questions lately, so I wanted to open up the pipe to everyone. Do you have a question you’d like to ask… about anything I’ve written, about how I write, about why I write, about things other than the written word? Send in your questions and I will collect […]

Get your fan photos in

Hello everyone in the Jackverse (And for those that aren’t sure of what “Jackverse” means: It’s anyone who dips their toes into my little world — and thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part.)! I have something fun I want to start. This “fun” was born of an idea I […]

10 Things I’ve Learned After Writing 10 Books

Last week I published Lie Zombie Lie. This was a milestone for me on a number of levels. First of all, this is the fourth novel in the I Zombie series and offers both myself and my readers proof in the brain pudding that Bethany Nitshimi and company are here to stay. Second, and I […]
