A native of Lawrence, MA, Jay Barrett attended the US Naval Academy and received a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He worked for General Dynamics as a flight test engineer on intercept and guidance systems for fighter jets in the US and Europe. Subsequent to this he worked at AVCO as a project engineer in the development of ballistic missiles.
Jay’s interests and accomplishments are many and include becoming a championship squash player in the US and Europe. His love of the sea led him SCUBA diving, searching for shipwrecks in New England and the Great Lakes. The father of five, Jay now lives in Central Florida. False Flag is his first book, with a second one close to completion.
