Jack Bray

Biography

After college, Jack had a successful thirty year career in broadcast television sales in New York City where he was born and raised, retiring as President of Blairsat, a satellite company he founded. His retirement years were spent as stock broker, teacher, publisher, lay minister and for the last 20 years, freelance writer.
While living in Florida, feeling the need to respond to criticism of Catholicism, he began writing letters to the editor that led to column writing and web postings. After moving to Cullman, Alabama, his current home, he published his first book, a collection of those writings, "When My Catholic Buttons Were Pushed". That was followed by his debut novel, "The Good Sheep", a story of temptation suffered by a young man seeking the priesthood. The sequel, "Immortal Enemy", is a tale of the devil following that young man in his first year as a priest.
His first novel of commercial fiction, "Grove House", is the story of a man who experiences the onset of dementia complicating his dealing with multiple suicides while living in a retirement home. His estranged daughter reunites and uncovers the mystery behind the suicides.

He has just published “The Dreamers”, a short story sequel to “Grove House”.
