We really want to thank Jay for being such a big supporter of our joint venture. She's truly encouraged us to set some pretty lofty goals here at Black Heart. We adore her and hope you do too!
Being native Coloradan is a source of pride if you ask Jay. She loves all the things her home has to offer, and that is why she set her books in this familiar place. Writing about what she knows is why her stories feature plenty of rock and roll and body modification.
Jay has been a bartender since she was in college, spending over forty hours a week watching interactions between men and women. This 9 to 5 job offered great insights into relationships - how they start and how they evolve in a social setting.
This cutting-edge author likes to write New Adult novels because she remembers being in her early twenties and thinking she had it all figured out, only to be proven wrong time and time again. When she looks back, she see's that those years defined who she is today, and, good or bad, those decisions ultimately set her current path.
Jay is represented by Stacey Donaghy. She has a three-book deal with HarperCollins, William Morrow Imprint for her stories, RULE, JET, and ROME.
Another three book deal sold with HarperCollins, William Morrow Imprint for stories, ROWDY, NASH and ASA.
