Jak Akerman

Biography

Hi there.
Thanks for your interest.
.I was born in Enfield, Middlesex, UK, where I was educated at Ambrose Fleming Technical Grammar. Won a couple of writing prizes while there. After beginning my working life as a Customs and Excise agent, moving on to become an Estimator with a construction firm, I moved down to the South West where fate, and my love of the sea, led me to research my first book, tak[ng a job as a 'deckey learner' fisherman, sailing on the Blue Sonata out of Starcross, Devon. To earn while i was writing I worked as an off-shore-marine fire protection engineer working the Channel ferries out of Lowestoft and ships such as the Oriana out of Southampton, oil platforms such as the Brittania.
I have traveled Brazil, Rio and the great rivers of Amazonia, where I was surprised to see natives in football shirts carrying their 'dinner' over poles between their shoulders. Then California twice, in my research as a writer. I have written three novels and I am working on a fourth. It's called 'The Shadow Chamber' and it's gonna be a great thriller.
I absolutely live for writing. Because I sure can't paint, play football or fly a plane.

Thanks for looking
