From the Publisher:

Jack has a website that takes his novel,"Death on the Wild Side" one step further in an online cartoon strip, Skylite Magazine which features the many dancers he meets, and the Lost Angels Forum where one can chat with topless entertainers while viewing the digitized pictures he has taken of them.

About the Author:

Becoming well known throughout the adult entertainment world, not just for his novel "Death on the Wild Side" but for the more than 3000 pictures he has taken of over 100 topless dancers and his many pranks, Jack and his friends have been taking the topless club scene by storm. Thumbing their noses at porn, they have captured the topless club's action, dancers, and managers through the magic of Jack's digital camera and his web site's chats in the Lost Angels.

The product of a college preparatory school's background, Jack graduated from the St Louis Priory with movie actor Kevin Kline, then received his BA in History from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. After a stint of teaching high school and going through a few sales jobs, he then earned his MBA from St Louis University.

One would have expected him to settle down into a job as an accountant, company manager, or financial analyst. Instead Jack decided to farm near Springfield, Illinois, ultimately living at the farm for twenty years----but something happened.

He got married---then after starting to undergo a divorce that took two and a half years to settle----he started to go out with strippers. The scene---the St Louis Metro East topless clubs, sixty-five miles from his farm. There he met the topless dancer who became the main female character of "Death on the Wild Side", Lori Mellon, who danced in one club as Nipples. While going out with Nipples, he managed to get into several fights in the clubs, was barred from several clubs, and received a couple DUI's. "Death on the Wild Side" is the product of those early strip club experiences.

Still living on the farm, Jack teamed up with a talented artist, computer man, and Blues guitarist, Scott Waggoner, and started up a web site as a means of selling books. For the two men the web site became an ideal-----something that they dreamed would transcend the commercial aspirations of practically all adult sites.

The core or the hub of the site was to be the Lost Angels forum where strippers and people from all walks of life could find a home where they could find others who shared their irreverent view of a world they did not choose. It was to be a place where women who had suffered from abused childhoods could go. A place where other writers could meet. A place where talented people from all walks of life could meet new friends, and to share their dreams and tears.

The Lost Angels chat format they adopted was suitable for the long posts of writers and for the posting of pictures and other graphical images active on a web server. Then.....Jack started going to the Gentlemens Club owners convention in Las Vegas where he ran an exhibitor's booth each year...four year's straight. At the convention he started to meet topless club owners, feature entertainers, porn stars, and some of the most widely known photographers on the adult entertainment scene.

Back in the St Louis Metro East clubs, Jack became friends with several dancers working at Dollies. He bought a laptop computer and a digital camera and convinced the general manager and one of the club owners to supply him with a phone line at the club's expense.

Hemingway had his Papa Joe's. Jack had his "Dollies" which is the name of the East St Louis club that was to become his neighborhood bar. His trips to Dollies became more frequent as his motel bills skyrocketed. He decided to move off the farm and took an apartment within fifteen minutes of most of the Metro East clubs.

The Lost Angels forum grew--its membership coming primarily throughout the U.S. and Canada. People from all walks of life came to be part of the group. A PHD from California became one of Jack's best friends and confidents. Topless dancers started posting their messages from their computers at home into the Lost Angels chats. Engineers, other writers, a club owner, and more than several computer professionals became long term members.

Jack became good friends with a Northern Indiana club owner, Sam Stimmel, after meeting him at one of the Las Vegas Gentlemens Club Owners Conventions. While visiting Sam he met Heaven, a beautiful dancer, who worked at Sam's club. Heaven got a computer and became very active in the Lost Angels group. She then started posting her poetry in the Lost Angels chats.

Meanwhile Jack continued to meet new girls at Dollies and at the clubs close by. He became reaquainted with a Metro East dancer named Alex. Alex bought a computer, went online, hired on at Dollies, and started sending Jack her poetry. "The Writers Nook" became with the Lost Angels Forum one of the most vital and happening places on the web site for it showcases the talent of four writers, Jack, Heaven, Alex and the mysterious Spectator who keeps Jack well supplied with club and dancer reviews.

Two dancers now with a voice which they can now share with the world, Heaven and Alex have their special place. They are now published. Meanwhile the Lost Angels chats are moving into new directions, offering issue orientated chats led by women, most of them from the dancing profession, as well as a weekly Recovery chat held by a woman outside the profession who focuses upon drug and alcohol addiction and the legacy of children growing up under the spectre of abuse.

Currently working on his second novel, doing his own web site development, and taking pictures of more than a hundred dancers, manager's, club patrons, Jack Corbett can often be found at Dollies, less then fifteen minutes from his Collinsville, IL. apartment. Becoming widely known throughout the St Louis area, men and women from all walks of life join him and the dancers at the club, often driving across the river from the St Louis side.
