Jay Stringer was born in 1980, and he's not dead yet.
He was raised in the Black Country, in England, but has lived in Glasgow for a decade now, and his loyalties are divided.
Jay is dyslexic, and came to the written word as a second language, via comic books, music, and comedy.
As a child, he spent his time dreaming of living in the New York of Daredevil comics and crime fiction, but as an adult he's channelled those dreams into fiction of his own.
Jay writes hard boiled crime stories, dark comedies, and social fiction. His heart beats for the outsider, and for people without a voice. He's coined the term "social pulp fiction" to describe his style.
