Author has written 15 stories for Pride and Prejudice, Master and Commander, Scarlet Pimpernel, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey.
Jack Caldwell, born and raised the Bayou country of Louisiana, is an author, amateur historian, professional economic developer, playwright, and like many Cajuns, a darn good cook. Always a history buff, Jack found and fell in love with Jane Austen in his twenties, struck by her innate understanding of the human condition.
Jack uses his work to share his knowledge of history. Through his characters, he hopes the reader gains a better understanding of what went on before, developing an appreciation for our ancestors' trials and tribulations. A devout convert to Roman Catholicism, Jack is married with three grown sons.
