Jack Bodkin is a retired certified public accountant and a proud descendant of one of the Fourteen Tribes of Galway. Briarhill to Brooklyn is his first book.

He was born in Brooklyn in 1947, and for the first two years of his life, his family lived at 325 Clinton Avenue, about a hundred yards from the home of the main character in Briarhill to Brooklyn—great-great-uncle Dominic.

In 1950 the family moved to the post-World War II community of Merrick, Long Island. Jack grew up in Merrick—Catholic grade school, little league baseball, school-yard basketball, and summers at Jones Beach. After graduating from Chaminade High School in 1965 and Wheeling College in 1969, he returned to Long Island and worked in New York City until 1977, when he moved to Wheeling, West Virginia.

For decades, Bodkin’s professional life as a CPA consumed his time. Active in his community, he was involved with economic development projects and served on the boards of several professional and charitable organizations.

Jack ran the New York Marathon in 1980 (finishing only an hour and forty-eight minutes behind the winner!) and began learning the game of golf in 1999.

He still lives in Wheeling with his wife, Christine, and their Yorkie, Lilly.
