Jack Goodwind was born on the troubled island of Sicily, a place full of ancient treasures as well as modern contradictions. He has done many things throughout his life including, running the family’s furniture shop in his hometown, traveling around Europe as a sales agent, managing an insurance agency in a small town, and becoming an Internet Marketing specialist.
He is a sailor. He served his country both in the Navy and the Army. He has seen the amazing and the horrible. He sailed several Maxi Cups in Porto Cervo among the wealthiest and most unimaginable luxury, and he saw the horrors and the atrocity of the war first hand.
Everything he has done has made him who he is today, the same person as when he started, and a completely new person that his life has taught him to be.
Now, he has become a writer, because there are too many things he wants to say, too many things he needs to share. His first novel in the Line of Blood Saga, Ancient Truth, despite its obvious references to the worlds of Sci-Fi and Fantasy, is actually a journey inside something impalpable, yet very real; the human soul. We are not “part of the picture,” we are masters, keepers, lords of this universe. Our right is to choose, our responsibility is to do it wisely. This is the ultimate gift the supreme Intelligence gave us, this is why and what we are. The point, his point, is to not pretend to have all the answers, it is simply to have the will to look for them.
Ancient Truth (Line of Blood Saga, Book One)
Ancient Truth is the first book in the Line of Blood Saga.
It is an alternative vision of history based on the theories about an alien colonization of Earth even before the apparition of the Homo Sapiens.
In it, history, myths, religious tales and even urban legends are blended to create a new and original story.
Modern characters alternate with ancient ones, to guide the reader on a unique journey. Aside the original conquerors of Earth, the mythological deities called Anunnaki, other alien species take their place, forging the path of early man.
Together with aliens, various kinds of monsters and mythological beings are also present in the story. The events take place in legendary locations, with a large use of mythological artifacts and books.
Many of the character names are recognizable, important figures of mythology, religion and history.
Of course, they live and behave very differently than their namesakes.
Ancient Truth and the entire Line of Blood Saga are, in the end, works of fantasy, in which, the only “truth” is the introspection on the human soul, the interior struggle man faces, forced between the choice of good and evil.
