Jerald Mayrand served his country as a soldier, his community as a businessman, and his family as a devoted husband, father and grandfather: a hardworking and easygoing man who treats each day as if it were the best day of his life.
At the age of sixteen and with his mother’s consent, he enlisted with the U.S. Air Force serving two years before switching to the U.S. Army. The Air Force wanted to make him a cook and so as he put it “I turned in my spatula for a rifle” serving proudly for twenty years in the Army. Jerry worked his way to the rank of Sergeant First Class, and retied in the 1970’s as a First Sergeant.
Fondly referred to as “Sarge” by his friends and co-workers, Jerry retired from his civilian career in 1998. He began writing as a youngster and now in his retirement, there is more time to start writing his novels. Jerry writes what he knows about, whether it is about military, weather, or things that terrify/interest him. If he doesn’t know much about a subject, he will go to libraries, online resources, or even personal friends that have knowledge that can be shared. Jerry has never been one for slacking off about research, because of this he writes as effectively as other well-known authors in the military mystery genre.
The first of several of Jerry’s novels will be out this fall from Shadoe Publishing!
