AUTHOR J Michael Jarvis writes from his experiences as a professional jet pilot, yacht captain, and global adventurer with thousands of true, remarkable, and often hilarious stories of how he mucked things up. From roller-skating across France as a teen to escaping pirates as a yacht captain in the Caribbean Sea, Jarvis has lived a life even the most imaginative writers can only begin to fictionalize.
Jarvis holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautics. He is a captain of both air and sea. He holds an Air Transport Pilot license and a Coast Guard Master License, allowing command of yachts and airplanes through experiences from North and South America to most Caribbean island nations.
A survivor as a passenger of an airplane crash, Jarvis has lived by a twist in the old pilot's adage: "Any landing you can crawl away from with broken arms and legs--on fire--is a good one." Jarvis continues to fly and write about his adventures on the sea and in the sky. His humor is both inspirational and thought-provoking, with rare insight into the generosity we are given with each extended day of our fragile lives.
An active member of the Southern California Writers Association, Jarvis lives just a few miles from where he was born in Newport Beach, California. Jarvis is happily married with four adult children. French Roll is his first book.
