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 alternative historical series, Braxton’s Century. He is currently co-authoring a non-fiction Whistleblower Expose on mismanagement, systemic intimidation and compromised care for veterans nationwide within the Veterans Administration. And in the works he has a follow-on to the Bratxon’s Century series Millennial Moguls Unhinged. His first book, the controversial novel, First Spouse of the United States, was published in March 2019. A sequel is soon to follow. A short story, The Lieutenant & The Vintner is available on Kindle.
