About the author

Ray Jay Perreault

Ray is a prolific author that enjoys storytelling. He feels that the Science Fiction genre is fertile ground to understand ourselves and where we’re going.

Ray was a Command Pilot in the US Air Force with over 4,500 flight hours. He traveled to 27 countries around the world in the C-130. His assignments ranged from landing in a farm field in Paraguay to entering West Berlin and experiencing Russian controllers giving him false headings.

Ray’s other assignment was as a T-38 instructor pilot. “The T-38 is the best plane in the word; two pilots, two engines, and two afterburners.” Two of his remarkable experiences included training the first class of female pilots and receiving an Air Commendation medal for saving a T-38 that blew an engine during a touch and go, saving himself and the student pilot on board.

After his Air Force career, Ray enjoyed a long and exciting career with Northrop Grumman. During the 28 years at Northrop, some of the highlights included work as the Lead Wind Tunnel test engineer on the F-20, F-23, F-18, and B-2. His career progressed to be the Deputy Manager of Engineering for the Tri-Service Stand-Off Attack Missile (TSSM). Later he was responsible for all of the computers at Ryan Aeronautical, then all of the computers on the B-2 Bomber program.

Ray hopes you enjoy his work, and he looks forward to sharing many new and exciting stories.
