About the Author

When Ed Jakubik first read Red Dragon by Thomas Harris in the summer of 1987, he immediately knew that he wanted to write a novel. Drawing upon his life experience coupled with a vivid imagination, Ed set out over a ten year period to pen his first novel, The Doll Collector, a psychological thriller written in the vein of works from his literary heroes like Harris, William Diehl, and Stephen King.

Ed grew up in Bayonne, NJ— a neighborhood that was more impressed with how far you could hit a stickball rather than how creative you could be. Luckily, he was cognizant of the 'signs' his higher power set forth and he began his journey. Ed has enjoyed a successful sales career for over a decade which helped mold a tenacious, never back down attitude towards his true passion— writing.

Ed and his wife, Maria, have two children; Jack and Lily. They reside in Spring Lake, NJ. Ed is a graduate of Castelton State College where, in 1995, he received his Bachelor of Science degree. Ed is also a proud graduate of St. Peter’s Prep of Jersey City, NJ.

Truly thrilling! Edward Jakubik clearly did his homework on writing this book. I am in law enforcement and the level of detail and other nuances Mr. Jakubik kept in the book made me feel like I was part of the crime scene and interrogation/interviews. Highly recommend to all crime genre readers (and others wanting to branch out). Great Job!

This book was suspenseful, heart-wrenching and a page turner. A must read. This is a psychological thriller like no other.

This book was like the movies texas chainsaw massacre or halloween on paper. Bloody gory and every five seconds someone gets slashed to death. I think there is good writing in there and the concept is there but the sheer amt of events killed the whole story along with the emotional impact it was supposed to create. Sorry but I don't think I will read another one..
