Though Jack Comeau has made his living as an Emmy Award-winning Lighting Designer for TV and Film, he has stayed close to his seagoing roots. His grandfather was a Grand Banks fisherman from Nova Scotia. Jack has spent years crewing old New England schooners much like the one that appears in his first novel, DISTRESS SIGNAL.
The great Hollywood icon of cinematography, Vilmos Zsigmond, brought Jack on board to write an ON THE WATERFRONT sequel along with that 1954 film's originator, Budd Schulberg. Vilmos was to be the director. Unfortunately, the project failed to come together before Mr. Schulberg's death. Vilmos is currently attached to direct another screenplay of Jack Comeau's titled: CLOSE PROXIMITY, the true story of a British tramp steamer ship that sat a mere ten miles from the sinking Titanic and never came to the rescue.
Jack is currently putting the final touches on his second novel, the first in a series of seven detective style novels with the same character as well as trying to find a home for his screenplay about topical singer/songwriter Phil Ochs, titled: WHILE I'M HERE.
Jack lives on the seacoast in Ventura, CA

Sometimes we have to go back to the time when things went wrong in order to make them right...
George Cooper, a 35-year-old Bostonian in a thankless job, is at the end of his rope. Desperate for change, he needs a way to gain the perspective and courage needed to do so.
After a crushing Thanksgiving encounter with his abusive, semi-ex-girlfriend, he ventures to the local island of Nantucket in search of that much-needed perspective. Little does he know that this magical, timeless island will challenge, then shatter, every perception he's ever had about life -- both his own and in general -- as his three-day weekend becomes an adventure spanning centuries.
He's about to meet the woman of his dreams - but there's a catch. She may only exist in his mind. All George knows is he loves her and would do anything for her.
But would he DIE for her?
