Meet The Author of "It's All About Me and a few others"
Jack Kregas was born in New England in the North East of the United States. After a stint in the US Army, he was discharged in Europe and the next forty years were spent skiing and living life to the max as well as creating several successful businesses.
Winters in the Alps and summers windsurfing on Maui, Jack departed Switzerland for Maui full time with his Australian wife and small daughter. After five years he moved the family to Australia and became an Australian Citizen.
Jack now lives in Brisbane. He plays golf and travels much of the year to play in poker tournaments, his hobby of the last ten years. At present he is working on a new novel: Magic Glasses to be released in July.
It's All About Me and a few others
Affirming a conscious decision to really live life, Jack risks all for adventure, sex and an addiction to skiing. At the same time he maintains the ability to create very successful businesses while engaging in scandalous behavior. It reads like fiction until the reader realizes it's true. A book of a life many would like to live but most will only read about. Honestly written based on memories with over forty photos and comments by those who were involved.
A no holds barred autobiography of travelling through life with no determined plan encountering adventures and outcomes seemingly unbelievable but actually happening. Guided by a positive nature and the ability to adjust quickly, Jack relies on luck of his own making to rise above adversity to rub shoulders with the rich and famous. Be prepared for exciting and dangerous skiing in the Alps to free diving in the Atolls of Polynesia. A sexual experience from a young age fired a never ending appetite for females which follows in every facet of his existence. Not your normal approach to life but a not normal conception driven by the quest for fun, sex, and thrills over thirty years. Enjoy!

This book was the single most entertaining book I have ever read. It seemed like fiction because the stories were so outrageous but I believe them to be true and reading about them was to live them vicariously. This book combines the adventures of Walter Mitty with James Bond and the life and times of Mr. Kregas is more entertaining than anybody I have ever read about. I think readers will really like it.

EXTRAORDINARY - should be X-rated - sexcapades galore. No doubt his HS
English teacher would be proud. Definitely a taste treat for a psychoanalyst. Its amazing he is still alive to tell the tales. Makes me wish I'd been one of his friends in Europe. With that O'Henry ending I'm eager for the next installment. It was fun reading that generating that page turning curiosity.

Also Available From Jack Kregas
Years in Europe chasing the ultimate adrenaline rush in deep snow or pursuing women with equal fervor were history. Real life was bearing down from all directions. Failure, something never experienced before was ego crushing. Being a single parent at an age far older than most have to cope with brought about responsibility and rules. Both had been avoided at all costs up until now. Working because of necessity instead of fun increased anxiety on a daily basis.
In a new country challenges were everywhere. Many might have given up but Jack pushed ahead using skills learned from his past to achieve limited success as he moved from one business opportunity to another.
Personal life was an up and down affair with ladies in and out of his life like the change of seasons. He understood as the years passed that everyday normal life was NO FUN. More and more he reverted to doing things his way following a path that he hoped eventually would lead to the freedom he had once experienced. It was many years of a life in transition.
It’s Not Only About Me continues on from It’s All About Me and a few others in the tradition of honestly relating how Jack’s views and style of living is far different than most. Thirty new photos document the journey.
This is a novel that will surprise you. The characters are like you and me. The decisions they make are real to life. In the end it comes down to individual values. Values that affect each of us in the lives we lead. A novel that twists comical circumstances with pleasures and fears into a controversial ending that will provoke thought long after it has been read.
