Jack Caldwell, born and raised in the Bayou County of Louisiana, is an author, amateur historian, professional economic developer, playwright, and like many Cajuns, a darn good cook.

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 uses his work to share his knowledge of history. Through his characters, he hopes the reader gains a better understanding of what went on before, developing an appreciation for o

“What if you reached the Age of Reason, only to find there was no reprieve,
Would you be a Man for All Seasons, or would you just disbelieve?”
Al Stewart

“Thus far then have we travelled along the terrible road we chose at the call of duty. The mood of Britain is wisely and rightly averse from every form of shallow or premature exultation.

To-day we may say aloud before an awe-struck world: 'We are still masters of our fate. We are still captain of our souls.”
Winston Churchill
