J.R. Strayve, Jr. was born to a nomadic military family, attending nine schools before entering college. Following service in the United States Marine Corps, he raised a family. It is here that he discovered his talent for ”spinning tales,” regaling his young children with spontaneous bedtime stories. His passion for history spoke to him. He spoke back and wrote the epic historical novel, Braxton’s Century. He is currently working on the sequel to Braxton’s Century, (a planned trilogy), Millennial Moguls Unhinged. He published the controversial novel, First Spouse of the United States, in March of 2019. A sequel is soon to follow.
