Jack Caldwell is an author, amateur historian, professional economic developer, playwright, and like many Cajuns, a darn good cook. Born and raised in the Bayou County of Louisiana, Jack and his wife, Barbara, are Hurricane Katrina victims who now make the upper Midwest their home.
His nickname-The Cajun Cheesehead-came from his devotion to his two favorite NFL teams: the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers. 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 is the author of two Jane Austen themed books. PEMBERLEY RANCH, a retelling of Pride & Prejudice set in Reconstruction Texas. THE THREE COLONELS is a sequel to Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility.
When not writing or traveling, Jack attempts to play golf. A devout convert to Roman Catholicism, Jack is married with three grown sons.
Jack's blog postings-The Cajun Cheesehead Chronicles-appear regularly at Austen Authors.
