Instructor Jacob Boucher—writing as Jack Badelaire

Historical fiction is popular, despite the fact that it is often an exercise in frustration for the story creators. In this Saturday morning workshop will explore the balance between fiction and history, and how the two can co-exist within one story in a way that appeals to the story’s target audience.

Jacob Boucher has a Bachelor’s degree in Film and Television Production with a Minor in Classical Studies, as well as a Master’s degree in Computer Information Systems and IT Project Management. He currently works at Boston University as an IT services manager. He also teaches blogging and self-publishing courses through the Brookline Adult and Community Education Program.

Under the pen name Jack Badelaire, he has written nine novels and a number of shorter works, mostly in the historical military adventure genre (namely the popular COMMANDO series, as well as Assault on Abbeville, San Francisco Slaughter, and the Western novella Renegade’s Revenge). You can find him online at postmodernpulp.com, where he discusses his writing as well as books, film, and other popular media.
