Author Jack Olesker’s professional writing career began in 1976. That year G. P. Putnam’s Sons published his first novel, NO PLACE LIKE HOME. The novel went on to become a best seller with MGM’s Sherry Lansing and legendary horror/suspense producer/director William Castle purchasing the film rights. Olesker went on to publish six additional novels. These novels notably crossed a number of genres from adventure to mystery to horror. Just when readers try to put Olesker in a box about what he would and could write, the author came out with a new successful novel in a previously untapped area. The film rights for Olesker’s third novel, the romance/horror tale BEYOND FOREVER, which was also published in condensed form by Cosmopolitan Magazine, were purchased by Yale Wexler Productions.
