About the Author
J. Stewart Willis
J. Stewart Willis graduated from the U.S. Military Academy and went on to pursue a graduate degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He served in Taiwan and later in Vietnam as Signal Officer of the 173rd Airborne Brigade. Afterward, Willis spent the next 16 years of his military career as a Professor of Physics at the Military Academy. In all, he proudly gave 25 years of his life to the U.S. Army.
Following his retirement from the military, he spent the next 12 years working for TRW, Inc. as a manager on the Department of Energy's Nuclear Waste Project at Yucca Mountain in Nevada. During his tenure with this company, he worked on three high-value proposals, including managing one worth more than $100 million. This isn't the end of Willis's career journey. He would eventually serve as the mayor of Washington, Virginia—a small town often referred to as "Little Washington." He spent 9 years as mayor for this small town before finally turning to his first passion: writing.
Willis still resides in Virginia where he spends his time writing novels inspired by real-life events.
