Jerry Kokich was born in New York into a theatrical family. Both his parents were Broadway performers, so he grew up surrounded by actors, singers and dancers. Jerry was a hockey player in high school, but actually wound up dancing for The Joffrey Ballet for 8 years (that's a story for another book). Moving to Los Angeles after retiring from dance, Jerry has appeared on a number of TV shows and in films, and has written and produced two successful web series. MONUMENTS OF DOOM is his first solo effort as a novelist. His favorite writer, and a big inspiration, is Clive Cussler. He wishes to express eternal gratitude to Tommy Hancock and TJ Glenn for getting MOD published.
