About this author

Bart Hopkins is originally from Galveston, Texas, but has called an eclectic mix of places home, such as Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Korea, and Germany. He was born in the middle of the 1970s.

He has served in the US Air Force for 19 years as a meteorologist. His passions include reading, traveling, photography, writing, and sharing time with his beautiful wife and three awesome children.

Bart feels that his background as a weatherman bridged naturally into the world of fiction—he’s seen fire, and rain, and sunny days that he thought would never end. He hopes to one day achieve global peace through his writing—one individual at a time—one book or article or post at a time. For now, and possibly forever, he writes across...more


Sign Journeys is the sequel to Sign Changes.


Double Threat! Not only is it is a fun story on the surface, it’s also full of deeper meaning when you stop and ponder the topics. The evolution of symbolism and communication and language are prevalent themes that are explored throughout the book. It’s woven together and interconnected in a truly wonderful way.


It’s got a little something for a variet...

4.5 of 5 STARS

The Keep is an interesting spin on vampire lore. It's woven loosely into a WWII setting, and by loosely, I simply mean that it has the historical setting, and some minor details, but most of the focus is on the story.

I enjoyed it and va...more

“Families start out, most of the time, with unconditional acceptance of one another. That acceptance starts in childhood and continues into adulthood. Somewhere in there, between childhood and adulthood, the ability to distinguish right versus wrong is born.”
Bart Hopkins, Texas Jack

“It was only a smile, nothing more. It didn’t make everything all right. It didn’t make anything all right. Only a smile. A tiny thing. A leaf in the woods, shaking in the wake of a startled bird’s flight. But I’ll take it. With open arms.”
Khaled Hosseini

“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”
Joseph Campbell

“A lot of our perception of history is influenced by inaccurate movies.”
Nelson DeMille, Plum Island

“Families start out, most of the time, with unconditional acceptance of one another. That acceptance starts in childhood and continues into adulthood. Somewhere in there, between childhood and adulthood, the ability to distinguish right versus wrong is born.”
Bart Hopkins, Texas Jack

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
Ernest Hemingway
