Jack Nash

Jack Nash is an author living and working in Virginia. He started writing when he became a ghost and speechwriter for a former head of state and Nobel Peace Prize winner. After his non-accredited work appeared in places like The New York Times, The Economist, and received standing ovations at the Nobel Foundation, he began to wonder what he could achieve if he turned toward fiction. He began seriously writing speculative stories in late 2021, and he made his first professional sale a year later. 
He holds dual degrees in anthropology and French, as well as a M.A. in African Studies from Yale. 

Originally from the deserts of the American West, Jack now wanders the urban forests of Virginia with his wife and daughter.

He is currently working on a novel — a thriller — and continues to pursue short fiction in many genres.
