Ray Jay Perreault Senior VP - Literary
Ray was born in New Hampshire, received his Bachelors of Science in Aeronautical Engineering at Arizona State University. Now retired from an influential, multi-decade career in aerospace, Ray is excited to join the Allport Productions team as he carves a new path as a leader in eBook, audio book and digital book authorship, production and consulting.
Bringing a new voice to science fiction writing, Ray realized there was a niche that was calling him as he began to write deeper characters, create more sophisticated stories and realistic situations for Sci-Fi fans to relate to.
Initially attracted to heroic characters with powerful weapons taking on hundreds of aliens, Ray began his literary career with a desire to extrapolate Sci-Fi stories with a touch of everyday reality that most of us experience in work and our every-day lives.
His literary work is thoughtfully enriched by his decade long experience in the US Air Force where he flew C-130s on missions to 27 countries, and T-38s while training the best pilots in the world, as well as the first female US Air Force pilots.
During his 28 years at Northrup Grumman, Ray worked on some of the most top-secret military aircraft projects in the world including the F-23, F-35, B-2, Global Hawk and many more that can’t be named.
He is grateful to his wife, Charlene and his two daughters, Christine and Robynn for their support on this new journey.
