Jack L Knapp

Jack Knapp grew up in Louisiana and joined the Army after graduating from high school. He served three tours in Germany and traveled throughout western Europe before retiring.
Jack then graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso before beginning his second career, teaching science in the El Paso ISD.
Always an avid reader, he took naturally to writing. He's experimented with ESP (The Wizards Series) and woodcraft/survivalism; the deep woods of Louisiana were his playground, the setting for his Darwin's World Series. He's a knight of the Society for Creative Anachronism, so combat scenes involving swords, spears, and bows and arrows are reality based.
Recent novels in the New Frontiers Series examine the challenges humanity will face when we begin to spread out into space. Beginning with a startup company building the first practical spacecraft (The Ship), to growing a business in space while overcoming Earth-based obstacles (NFI: New Frontiers, Inc), to humanity's first contact with a non-human species (NEO: Near Earth Objects), then BEMs (Bug Eyed Monsters) and MARS, the novels are largely extrapolations from current events.
And the series isn't finished; Pirates is underway and another as yet unnamed is in the planning stages.
He's also involved in social media, especially Facebook. His current circle of friends and acquaintances, many of them fellow members of Mensa, live on every continent except Antarctica.
Jack's boundless imagination is always in evidence, but you'll have to read his novels to find out just how imaginative he is!
