Why, Hello there!

My name is John Royce Holtz. My writer's/ musician's nombe de plume is "Jacque D'Artichoke, J.D." I live in the San Francisco Bay with my 43 imaginary baracudas! I received a Juris Doctorate (Law Degree) from University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law and I am a former, varsity NCAA Division 1 tennis player. Since 2008, I have written three books that are available on Amazon.com and Kindle.com: the avant-garde novel, The Ascent of a Barbarious Court Squatter, and two volumes of 150+ essays: Sporty Reflections of a Court Recidivist and Some Day You'll Know Me (Until Then, I'll Vent!).

I recently composed a pop/rock, digital music collection available on iTunes entitled Moon Palace by Jacque D'Artichoke. Subsets of the five tunes in the collection would be ideal for movie soundtracks, television shows and commericals, and radio airplay.

Famed Criminal Defense Attorney Tony Serra wrote about the hilarious Ascent of a Barbarious Court Squatter, "It is brilliant, articulate, full of much psychology, philosophy, sociology, many aphorisms, and like being sprinkled with LSD!" The novel illuminates how to tackle adversity by internalizing four zany personas, regardless of external thwarts or realities.
