Jay Nichols


Jay Nichols was born in Houston, Texas, in the late '70s and resided there until the mid '00s. He then moved to San Antonio, where he began work on his debut novel, Canis Major.

His fiction is sometimes funny, sometimes cruel. He takes no prisoners and isn't afraid to break your heart.
