About Jack


Jack Castlewhite is a writer and attorney based in Tampa, Florida. He is currently revising the manuscript of a thriller tentatively titled “The Ash Maker”.

    Jack was born in Dallas, Texas but has  lived and worked in other locales including Chicago, Long Island, New York City, Paris, France, rural Alaska, and North Carolina. Jack graduated from Davidson College with a degree in History, and from The University of North Carolina School of Law at Chapel Hill. He passed much of the last 18 years practicing real estate, land use and business law. Most of that time was spent working for law firms in North Carolina and Florida.

    Whenever possible Jack escapes to the Blue Ridge Mountains to write in isolation. When not writing, practicing law or throwing oversized tennis balls to his giant dog Cooper, Jack spends his time reading, listening to music, running, biking, shuffling and watching Arsenal soccer or Dallas Mavericks basketball.  He also enjoys spending Saturdays tracking back and forth between his writing office at home and the charcoal and wood smoker in the back yard, slowly smoking everything from ice cubes to brontosaurus ribs.

     Jack resides in Tampa with his wife and two dogs.
