JOHN HEMRY (who writes as Jack Campbell) is a retired US Navy officer and a graduate of the US Naval Academy. At the USNA, he majored in International Relations and lettered in fencing. On his first berth, the USS Spruance, he served first as Gunnery Officer and later as Navigator/Administrative Officer, with collateral duties including Ship’s Legal Officer. He later moved into naval intelligence and the newly-created Navy Anti-Terrorist Alert Center, where he worked in collaboration with the other services and the Joint Chiefs. He eventually returned to sea duty in the Western Pacific before concluding his career with another stint at the Pentagon, broadening his expertise through service as an action officer for operational plans, interfacing not only with the other services but with diplomatic communities as well. He received numerous awards and decorations for his service, before the end of the Cold War provided an opportunity for early retirement in 1994, twenty years after his entrance into the Naval Academy.
This allowed him to embark on second careers as a writer and father while still at a fairly young age. He lives in Maryland with his wife and children. And he’s moved up the ranks as a writer just as he did in the Navy, graduating from well-received short fiction and articles to book-length military science fiction. His Stark’s War series is accurate and exciting ground-up military sf set on the moon. His Paul Sinclair novels take even greater advantage of his military background, as Paul Sinclair’s development as an officer will over time allow John Hemry to utilize every aspect of his twenty years of Navy experience.
Navy Captain David E. Meadows, himself an author of the ‘6th Fleet’ and ‘Joint Task Force’ series says ‘Hemry is the real thing. A Navy veteran who captures the future Fleet in space age fiction. Thrilling excitement on every page with fast moving action that captures the reader.’
John’s (Jack’s) ‘s LOST FLEET novels are published in the UK by Titan Books.
‘A slam-bang good read, and yes, it kept me up at night… Solid, thoughtful, but also exciting.’ — Elizabeth Moon on The Lost Fleet
