About the Author:
When he was growing up in a rough part of a small Wisconsin town, his mother didn’t set the bar very high for her rebellious middle son. “Just don’t wind up in jail,” she warned him.
It took Karl Jacobs a few years to tame his mischievous spirit, but he wound up in a jail only once, and that was merely to conduct a newspaper interview with a St. Louis alderman arrested in a civil rights demonstration.
As a journalist, Karl was a senior writer and editor with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, covering racial violence in Watts and Chicago and meeting newsmakers of every sort, including a U.S. Senator named John F. Kennedy, a charismatic civil rights leader named Martin Luther King, and the brother of the man who assassinated King. Karl later was press secretary for a United States Senator.
When he entered the business world, he worked in the headquarters of major corporations in NYC, New Jersey, and Delaware, winding up as a special assistant to the Vice Chairman of DuPont and a vice president at Prudential Financial and chief speechwriter for two of its chairmen and CEO’s.
Both of his novels grew out of this mix of experiences. His latest, THE HONORABLE THING, is the funny, deeply moving story of two 30-something people, both married, who are thrown together in a puritanical giant corporation and break all the rules by falling in love. His first, an Amazon bestselling thriller, was THE PRESIDENT’S KILLERS, inspired by the assassinations of JFK and Martin Luther King.
Born and reared in Superior, Wisconsin, Karl is a journalism graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and later returned there to do graduate work in sociology as a Sage Fellow. He and his wife Kay met in high school band when he winked at her on a quarter bet with a fellow trumpet-player. He was 16 and she was 14. He won both the quarter and, eventually, Kay. They have three adult children and now live in Arizona.
