The recently released Road to Rouen is author Jack Waddell’s second novel and marks a decided turn in genre from his first offering. Tuesday’s Caddie is a bittersweet love story set in the 1930’s while Road definitely explores 1950’s crime noir. At the same time, both draw from his experience as child in California and his youth in rural Illinois. A life-long reporter, writer and producer whose adult life was spent working in the New York Metropolitan area, he currently is much happier living on a golf course in Central Florida with his loving wife Jean Cormier. The author welcomes comments and queries. His website includes notes on developing the books and their inspiration.
