About the Author
Harrison Jones writes aviation fiction from a personal perspective. Before becoming an airline pilot, his forty year career included an enlistment in the U.S. Navy followed by stints as an aircraft mechanic, a pilot ground school instructor and a flight instructor. He retired as an international captain with more than 20,000 hours in the cockpit and extensive flying throughout Europe, Asia, South America, and the Middle East. While serving as a Civil Reserve Air Fleet pilot during Operation Iraqi Freedom, he was recognized by the Air Mobility Command with the Aerial Achievement Medal for flying numerous troop transport missions into Kuwait. His writing features realism and plausibility that is uncommon in aviation novels. Harrison's method has been described as separating fiction from fantasy by developing plot that is not only possible but could easily show up in tomorrow's headlines. Harrison says, "My career has blessed me with an endless supply of colorful characters and I allow them to dialogue freely. My narrative is there to simply keep them in scene and herd them all toward a final conclusion." A native Georgian, Harrison lives near Atlanta with his wife, Diane.
