About Jack Mulcahy

Proud Descendant of Poets and Bards

I am a descendant of Irish poets and bards who passed on to me a love of stories and storytelling. A writer all my life, I have produced free-lance articles for newspapers and magazines, and sold fiction to Altered Reality, Pulp Empire, New Realm, Lesbian Short Fiction, Lost Worlds, Flashing Swords and Young Adventurers, among others. All my stories are connected to a single heroic fantasy saga; at its center is a novel that combines the fantastic adventure of Robert E. Howard’s Conan with the feminist themes of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid’s Tale. My wife and I live in suburban Philadelphia, by the grace of our two cats, the real homeowners.

"In my view, a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise,
you keep writing anyway."
