Join us at Rock Creek Sports Club on June 23 from 5-7pm for a “Tales from our Near Future Book” Signing with Jackson Coppley!
Jackson Coppley has always loved to tell stories.
“”I used to make up stories for my kids when they were little,” Coppley says. “And when I was dating my Ellen, I use to call her in the evenings and tell her stories over the phone.”
With all these stories and ideas bouncing around in his head, since he can remember, Coppley knew that someday he wanted to write when he could find the time.
Now that time as come! We’re excited to announce that Copley, a Rock Creek Sports Club Member, has recently published his first book, “Tales from our Near Future.”
Tales from our Near Future is a collection of three stories, which Coppley categorizes as “Techno Romance” and asks the question “What happens when the age of high technology encounters the human need for love?”
Coppley — whose career included a top-secret clearance working in tech with national security and the military — says he has often speculated about where we were in technology, where we are going, and how it will affect people.
“I think about how quickly we can Google information,” Coppley explains. “How that affects our nature at a conversation at party, or from a privacy view point — knowing everything about someone.”
Coppley is excited about the release of “Tales from Our Near Future,” and is eager to get started writing his next book, starting with trip to Italy that will include some time for research.
For Coppley, any day that he sits down and writes something, (he tries for at least 1,000 words on a daily basis), he says he knows it’s going to be a good day.
“I like the writing part the best,” he explains. It’s a pleasure. When I start writing, it’s like the story starts telling itself to me.”
