About JR Thomas

My life so far, has consisted of many endeavors. From college days of studying, to learning and working in many trades; such as owning a heating and air-conditioner business, maintenance manager, computer technician, programmer analyst, business analyst, information technology manager for a fortune 500 company, and ending my business career as a part-owner of a large extrusion and lamination company in New Bern, NC.

I am now retired from a “regular” job and have decided to spend the later part of my life writing memoirs, short stories, and fictional novels. A learning curve goes with all jobs, and it i seems to be true with writing professionally as well.

Seems writing would come easy to someone at my age. After all, I have spoken and written in English for over six decades. However, I still struggle with sentence structure and grammatical correctness. I sure wish I had listened more attentively in my English classes.

Although writing is a struggle at times, I enjoy creating a story, weaving events, and then involving interesting characters in stressful places to make the story come alive.

I have written four novels that are available for purchase. Hope you enjoy them!
