Jack first started work on The Two Empires while still at school, on the basis that he liked to read but would like it even more if he got to decide what happened in the story. The first draft was completed over the course of several years, and since then has been rewritten again and again until Jack is finally happy with the text.

Aside from reading and writing, Jack enjoys radio control car racing and (to his continual surprise) jogging. He used to do karate and fencing. He would like to be able to draw but has no talent for it, which is why you won't see any of his illustrations in The Two Empires.

Jack would love to hear from anyone interested in his work. You can reach him on social media at the links below, or email him at jack@malkovari.com. He will make sure he replies, at least until he becomes the world's most famous author.
