'Although largely fiction, the book is based on my personal experiences growing up and serving in the Navy,' Doctor Jac says.

Throughout his 81 years of life, Doctor Jac survived cancer, a stroke, open-heart surgery and the death of his son all while remaining active and successful in business. Widely touted as one of the top human resource consultants in the country, Doctor Jac has had a varied career and is topping it off this year with the publication of his 400th article and 13th book on human capital return on investment.

Although he made his mark in the business world, Doctor Jac is now transitioning into a different area – writing. In his debut novel, “Rough Waters: The Life of a Naval Intelligence Officer” (published by Abbott Press), he tells the action-filled story of Michael Still’s life and adventures, both personal and professional.

“Although largely fiction, the book is based on my personal experiences growing up and serving in the Navy,” Doctor Jac says. “Reliving my experiences as a naval intelligence officer through Michael Still was at times very emotional and painful, yet rewarding.”

After publishing “Rough Waters,” Doctor Jac realized he still had more story left to tell. With encouragement from his wife, Laura, he is currently working on a sequel and plans to complete a series of books about the adventures of Michael Still in the near future.
