Howard Jackson was born in Merseyside in 1948. He still lives there and has spent most of his life in Liverpool, although he has also lived in London, Nottingham, Glasgow and Preston for brief periods. He reads, watches movies, listens to music (a lot), supports Liverpool football club and climbs hills in the Lake District and Yorkshire.
Howard has travelled extensively around the American South, seeking out juke joints and honky tonks, visiting recording studios and meeting celebrated musicians. This passion for music led to his first book, Treat Me Nice, available to buy now.
Inspired by an interest in Brazilian history, he has also journeyed around Brazil, detailed in his book Innocent Mosquitoes.
His third book ‘No Money Honey‘ mixes analysis of British politics with an examination of American rock and roll.
‘Nightmares Ahead’ contains 30 horror stories intended to ‘harrow the mind’ and one story to help the reader recover.
His acclaimed novel Choke Bay mixes horror and unrequited love in an unforgettable setting.
Horror Pickers offers an in-depth look at a wide ranging and far from typical selection of forty horror films.
Light Work reflects on the legend and crimes of Jack the Ripper from an unusual and common sense perspective.
Howard Jackson is published by Red Rattle Books.
