Reviews for Jack's Back
Sometimes when something breaks, it's shattered forever. Jim picked up the pieces and made it better. His personal growth and determination makes the story very engrossing. Reed's character is fully explored, and his changes are believable. Id sure like to read the story of Brian and Bear - these secondary characters are fully fleshed out. I'll surely put A.C. Katt's name on the ''automatic buy'' list. (oops- I didn't realize "A Matter of Trust" was already written. That's next on my reading list) -- 5 stars, Falling Tree, Amazon

About AC Katt
AC Katt was born in New York City’s Greenwich Village. She remembers sitting at the fountain in Washington Square Park listening to folk music while they passed the hat. At nine, her parents dragged her to New Jersey where she grew up, married and raised four children and became a voracious reader of romantic fiction. At one time she owned over two thousand novels, until she and her husband took themselves and the cat to New Mexico for their health and its great beauty.
Now, most of AC’s books are electronic (although she still keeps six bookcases of hardcovers), so she never has to give away another book. AC is new to both GLBT and to writing being, as she claims, a late bloomer, however, she claims to have found her niche writing GLBT romance.
She hangs out at ACKatt.com and keeps her journal at www.ackattsjournal.blogspot.com. This is a very opinionated kitty and at ackatt.com where you may find snippets of her current releases, as well as some from works in progress.

An Interview with AC Katt
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: AC, thank you for talking with us at TRS! Your featured book is Jack’s Back. Where did you get the idea for this sensational romance?
AC: It was the logical sequel to A Matter of Trust. Reed and Jim were such strong secondary characters in A Matter of Trust that they needed their own story. The idea of how the story was told came from an old movie, George Cukor’s The Women. This is a movie about several women and their husbands. All of the action in the movies is caused by the men; yet they never appear on camera. I did this with Jack’s Back. The plot revolves around Jack but he never appears in a scene.
HH: What do you like best about Jim and why will readers be cheering for him?
AC: Jim is witty and fun. Despite being devastated by Reed’s rejection, he picks himself up, dusts himself off and makes a full life for himself with his cat, Waltzing Matilda. Even when things go wrong, he remains strong.
HH: What do you like best about Reed and why will readers love him?
AC: Reed is a lost soul. He doesn’t know what he really wants and when he finally discovers what he wants, he doesn’t quite know how to get it. When he realizes what he has lost in Jim, he turns to Bear, his best friend for help.
HH: What did you enjoy most about writing their story?
AC: I enjoyed recreating the culture of the BDSM club, Indiscreet. It was interesting to write about how the “back of the house” operates and what exactly it takes to run this type of club.
HH: What is the biggest challenge in writing a story with a D/s relationship?
AC: Since the D/s relationship between Jim and Reed was already established in A Matter of Trust, what was interesting in Jack’s Back was the de-evolving of this kind of relationship and the effort it takes to put it back together.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
AC: I have a werewolf story in submission and I am working on another novel set in the World of Indiscreet, Doctors Greg Harris and Francisco de Loria’s story.
HH: What do you enjoy most about being an author?
AC: What I enjoy most about writing is creating worlds for my characters and placing them in precarious situations and attempting to write their way out of them.
HH: How has your writing career changed since you started out?
I have more confidence in my writing and the stories I have to tell. When I finish telling my story, I always seem to have another crop up that has to be told.
HH: What do you think has been the most positive change?
AC: I have grown as a person through my interaction with other authors, my editors and fans. I can’t really believe that A actually have books in print.
HH: Where can readers find you online?
AC: I can be found at www.ackatt.com and at www.ackattsjournal.blogspot.com.
HH: Thank you!
