About Me

Hello! I’m Jay. I am an author of contemporary young adult, new adult romance and paranormal/urban fantasy. When I write I’m often inspired by daydreams, celebrity crushes, a childhood fascination of Japanese drama and manga, and an incessant itch to go places. Find a complete list of my books here. I blog about stuff I like too, and I like many things, which would explain the mishmash you’ll find here.

Adaptation rights for my books are represented by Mina V. Esguerra (RomanceClass Books) and Anna Liza Recto-Ruth (Bold MP). Send inquiries to mina@romanceclassbooks.com or annaliza@boldmp.com.
