Hello dear readers, today Austenesque Reviews is once again excited to welcome back author Jack Caldwell, who is publishing a new and unique Austenesque series. Jack has thoughtfully prepared a little Q&A to share with you today,which I, myself, very much enjoyed reading! I hope you enjoy learning more about Jack, his writing, and his new novels –Bourbon Street Nights and Elysian Dreams!
I understand that in 2015, you have four books coming out. Not only that, but it’s a project near and dear to your heart. Can you tell our readers something about CRESCENT CITY?
To put it simply, CRESCENT CITY is my 300,000 word argument why New Orleans matters.
This all started in 2006. Some of your readers may know that my wife, Barbara, and I are Hurricane Katrina victims. We lived near New Orleans and were there during the storm. Our house survived, but our jobs did not. Work brought us to Wisconsin, and while there, I heard one too many know-it-all talking head on TV proclaiming that New Orleans should be abandoned after the storm, because it was “under water.”
Now among other things, New Orleans is home to the largest bulk port in the United States. Most of the crops and grains exported by the US to nations around the globe flow through that port. Without this facility, not only would countless farmers in America lose their livelihoods, millions of people world-wide would starve.
