Jay Leicester

Created by J.C. Simmons

JAY LEICESTER is your eye-in-the-sometimes-not-so-friendly-skies, a retired airline pilot who now specializes in investigating mostly aviation related cases: recovery of stolen aircraft, investigating drug-hauling pilots, and helping set up corporate aviation departments.

Jay's more than a little digruntled with his former occupation, and has more than a few axes to grind. He admits he retired because he was "fed up with the bureaucratic web the government spun over the aviation industry, and partly because anyone with the price of a bus ticket could fly on the airlines, which resulted in overbooking, overcrowding, and near chaos on every route."

Yeah, Jay, let's keep those tawdry, unruly masses down on the ground where they belong. (Or maybe connsider a job at United?)

Coming from a long line of judges and police officers, Jay fell back on the law, and opened his own private investigation business. Jay has a slight problem with authority, and little patience for the law. Maybe it's just as well he's not flying those big boys anymore.

J.C. Simmons was born, raised, educated, and stayed in Mississippi. A retired Airline/Corporate pilot himself, he writes the Jay Leicester series. He's also written a biography of Hemingway, and several short stories. He's married and currently resides on the family farm in central Mississippi where he is working on an aviation book dealing with his flying experiences.
