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 Suncoast area of Florida 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. (Every now and then, Jack has to play the DVD again to make sure the Saints really won in 2010.)
Jack’s novels include the Austenesque books PEMBERLEY RANCH, THE THREE COLONELS, MR. DARCY CAME TO DINNER, and THE COMPANION OF HIS FUTURE LIFE.
2015 is the year for the CRESCENT CITY SERIES on the history of New Orleans and Louisiana. THE PLAINS OF CHALMETTE recounts the Battle of New Orleans. BOURBON STREET NIGHTS, ELYSIAN DREAMS, and RUIN AND RENEWAL is a trilogy about Hurricane Katrina.
When not writing or traveling with Barbara, 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—now appear regularly at Austen Variations.
