Welcome Jack Wallen, horror author
BIO (this is the long version):
You’re listening to …
Oh wait, wrong shtick. This isn’t about a DJ or an apocalypse. This is about Jack … just Jack.
If you don’t mind, I’m going to work in third-person here. Yeah, I’m going to call myself, The Jack.
Too pretentious? Okay. Fine. I’ll just go with “Jack”.
The path to becoming a professional writer was certainly the one less traveled for Jack. Originally, Jack’s artistic bent led him to a career as an actor.
No, not an actor in a bear costume (not even for “Furry Porn”). Jack did it his way. Working on Broadway and with regional and Shakespeare theatres across the country, Jack is proud to have held his own as an actor for over twenty years.
Twenty freakin’ years. Am I really that old?
Oh wait … third person.
Crap, where was Jack? Oh yes, he remembers.
But, as they say, all good things…
Before the economy had a chance to completely destroy the theatre arts, Jack decided to take his final curtain call during a production with the heralded Stage One Theatre for Young Audiences. It was, however, during that long career that Jack discovered he had a knack for the written word. His first, full-length novel was written between 2000 and 2003. That book, A Blade Away, eventually became his first published work. It didn’t take Jack long to fall in love with the creative process of writing and he followed that first book up with the cult-favorite, Shero.
It wasn’t until Jack woke up one summer morning with a simple question on his mind, that he would finally dive into the craft of horror fiction tooth and nail. That question, “What would it be like to transform into a zombie?” led Jack to pen the first novel in the I Zombie series — I Zombie I.
From there, Jack dove into the deeper waters of horror and has never looked back.
