About the author (2001)

After spending twenty years in the military as a pediatrician and pediatric cardiologist, Jack Powell retired - but not for long. He was recruited to set up a practice in central Florida, where he and his wife, Jean, still live today. The state's unique history and folklore sparked his interest, leading to research and, eventually, his two books with Pineapple Press.
