"I have a low tolerance for people who take themselves too seriously." Jerry Roberts

    



Jerry Roberts

Bio


I have been a Juvenile Delinquent, Army Infantry Sergeant, Jungle Warfare Instructor, Cave Diver, Scuba Instructor, Hotrod Builder, and Author.

I served in the Army for 21 years and was with the 1st Air Cavalry Division and the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam. I was a scuba diver for 28 years and worked as a Divemaster or Instructor for 26 of those years.


I write like I talk and although I didn’t intend for my books to be comedic, they seem to have turned out that way. I don’t believe in taking myself too seriously which may account for the fact that my books appeal to almost everyone from 18 to 70.


"I’ve got hundreds of stories to tell and I love to tell them. On any given weekend in the rain, hot sun, or snow you can find me hovering over my grill cooking ribs or chicken. The smell of hickory smoke is always thick in the air. I am more than happy to sit down with a cold beer in my hand and tell my stories to anyone who will listen." Jerry Roberts






Accomplishments: Jerry’s instructional certifications include; Advanced Nitrox Instructor (IANTD), Dive Control Specialist Instructor (SSI), Master Scuba Diver Trainer (PADI), Oxygen First Aid Instructor (DAN), Open Water Instructor (NASDS), and Medic First Aid Instructor (PADI). He is also a certified Full Cave Diver (NACD) Technical Cave Diver (IANTD) and Gas Blending Technician (IANTD).
