Jay M. Horne, an author turned publisher, sprang up among the roots of a literary family tree. His grandparents were both English teachers, his aunt a grade-school principal, his late uncle a poet, his mother and sister artists and he, a life-long lover of martial arts, especially the style of Tesaihiryu Ninjutsu, which he created and coined their motto 'The Perfection of Life'.
He was raised as a middle child. His older brother, Justin and younger sister, Jillian shared his childhood.
Jay's writing career began in 2010 with his release of 'Life's A Joke!', at the age of 30. It is a title that he currently is slightly ashamed to claim as his own, but regardless continues to be the top seller in his library. To begin with, writing was therapy, but since has become a passion of his. Reading, editing, publishing, cover design, everything about books captures him.
At the age of ten, Jay had begun writing and designing on computers. Many old childhood books he created are published now, after years of sitting in a file cabinet of his father's.
Currently, Jay lives in New Port Richey, Florida with his wife and three children and continues to work on the PANGEA Chronicles.
Jay works in Pinellas County at Sunstar Paramedics as an EMT and volunteers at the Port Richey Fire Department.
PANGEA is Jay's 'Magnum Opus'. Currently, book two is available worldwide and he works daily on the writing of the prequel 'The Fae'. The story begins before time itself and follows the first beings of the Universe to the physical realm where they will undergo the challenge of defining what it means to be Human.
