About Jack

A voracious reader, Jack Cullen grew up reading any book he could get his hands on. His favorite genres are science fiction, fantasy and mysteries. A veteran of both the Army and the Air Force, Jack is a fourth-generation police officer and to his father’s horror, he’s also an attorney.

A Detective Lieutenant with over 25 years in law enforcement. Jack started out as a beat cop and worked a variety of positions in his career. He’s been involved in cases ranging from shoplifting to murder. He is currently the Officer In Charge of a detective unit that investigates crimes against special victims.

After 9/11, Jack was tasked by his department to assist the NY/NJ Port Authority with rescue efforts at Ground Zero. This experience prompted him to reenlist and he deployed as part of Operation Enduring Freedom, just months after the attack. Upon returning, Jack earned a Doctor of Law from the Massachusetts School of Law. After eight years of holding the dual roles of police officer and attorney, Jack paused his law practice in order to write.

His first novel Runes of Steel debuted in 2019 and climbed into Amazon’s bestseller list for Occult Horror and is the first place winner of the Chanticleer International Book Award for Paranormal Fiction.

A member of several writers’ groups, Jack has been known to field late night calls from frantic writers looking to pick his brain on police procedures. Because of this, starting in 2020, Jack will also be hosting a YouTube show called Books, Bullets & Booze which has a very different take on author interviews.

Jack lives in New Hampshire with his wife and kid, the dog, the dog’s cat, six hens and a demon of a rooster named Sean.
