Jamison J. Manion lives in central Virginia with the wife of his youth and their charismatic dog, a curmudgeon of a cat and ten fish (give or take a few depending on the day). He enjoys travel, learning, helping others, and dabbling in all things creative.
Throughout his life, Jamison has traveled and worked extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad. He began his career in the United Sates Navy where he had the opportunity to work in engine rooms and to take part in intelligence analysis. He served aboard ship, on submarines, and flying with a squadron of P-3 patrol aircraft. In his civilian career, he has worked in factories, offices, education and training, consulting, financial analysis, with the railroad, and within city government. He has worked for others and has run his own company.
Jamison’s education is equally diverse ranging from nuclear engineering, sociology & psychology, through business administration.
For fun, Jamison enjoys the arts: sketching and painting, pottery and sculpture, and the theater. He also is fascinated with writing and languages.
His broad range of interests, experiences, and travels provides a unique perspective reflected in his writing. His first published book, Dead Justice: Fall from Grace is a crossover novel merging the Crime Detective and Ghost Horror genres. Guided by his faith, Jamison combines his experiences, education, research, and insight into human nature with technically accurate details to explore all facets of the human experience.
