About Me
For those new to me or my reviews… here’s the scoop: I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon. I write A LOT. I read A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at, where you’ll find the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge – words and humor. You can also find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who/what/when/where and my pictures. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators. Follow my blog with Bloglovin.

    Is there a reason for 1998? Or maybe it’s personal? 😮

      Oh! I should have explained. I would be 21 and just about done with college. I would love to see what I’d do differently in life but also fondly recall the excitement to begin things.

    Owls is a good one because their heads spin all the way around so you really could “see all sides!” Thanks for the nomination 🙂

    You miss winter already? Well each to his own I suppose. And singing is just a matter of training and learning how to do it.

    I do not miss winter at all, that is why I head to Florida in January. I love the mystery machine, it brings me back to my younger days.
