“Don’t just survive. Learn to thrive!”

Capt. Jack Molan: Speaker & Author from the edge

ABOUT

Captain Jack fished the remote Aleutian Islands for thirty-five years. Starting on the 123- foot Marco fishing boat Columbia as a greenhorn deckhand in the king crab boom era of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, he rose to captain of the same vessel in 1987.

Jack gives readers the insider’s view of the sometimes harrowing, yet satisfying, fisherman’s life in the northern seas on the Columbia, in brutal winters and foggy summers until 2013, and he describes maneuvering through the ice-covered Arctic waters on the research vessel Norseman II in 2014 and 2015. Over the last few summer seasons,  Jack has also captained the “Deadliest Catch” vessels Aleutian Ballad and Cornelia Marie.

And family life? Captain Jack shows how separation from loved ones and reconnecting with “normal” on land can be a challenge. Anytime he could, he brought his family along. His wife, son, and both daughters have all worked on and around the Bering Sea.  Jack has recently left the sea captain’s life to be an author and public speaker.

Capt Jack

From my book (in progress), "Eagle Clans" Please share.

Rootok the mysterious:
His mentor had been a battle hardened warbird who’d fought in the Dark Times. But Rootok’s master suffered an untimely death, and other potential masters had yelled, “Go away. We have no use for a half-trained shaman.”
Rootok wandered the islands alone, barely surviving the frozen black Alaskan nights. His knowledge grew from small victories amidst near starvation and death from exposure when he couldn’t find adequate shelter. While practicing secrets of the mystics that his master had shown him, he learned truths unknown to others. As an adult, he seldom appeared among the clans, so if Rootok visited, his presence stirred gossip. #eagleclans #eagles #Baldeagles
