Jay Toney

Biography

Jay Toney is a USAF veteran. He served in Desert Shield, Desert Storm, and Liberation of Kuaite. He worked as an aircraft mechanic with experience working on the F-4, T-38, F-117A, and the F-16. During his enlistment, he attended college at South Plains College, Huston, Community College, and The Community College of the Air Force. Later he attended Pensacola Jr. College.
Jay lived in several of the United States coastal states: New Jersey, Oklahoma, Northern and Southern California, Texas, North Carolina, Florida, Nevada, and Alabama. He also lived abroad in Germany, and Saudi Arabia. During his adult life and military service, he visited several other states and countries both in Europe and the middle east.
His first love was anything to do with aircraft. He used to watch planes take off and land at a small airport near his home in San Jose. That experience and love of aircraft led him to join the Air Force.
Jay was always an avid reader, reading anything he could get his hands on including the Encyclopedia Britannica, and he did that in the 2nd grade. In his early teens, he was introduced to Science Fiction and Fantasy. Robert Heinlein quickly became his favorite author.
During his life, he read well over a thousand books by hundreds of authors. He wrote a few short stories but never had any real interest in becoming an author. That is until recently. Jay was gifted as being a good technical writer, and reports like Annual Performance Reports came easy to him. A few years ago he decided to try writing fiction. It was a difficult transition, but one he still enjoys. To Jay, writing isn't just about telling a story. It is about creating a universe of his own. In his universe, both good and evil are at war with each other. Jay is currently working on his eighth novel, The Dark Citadel.
His current interests include science fiction, fantasy, ancient civilizations, computers, anthropology, geology, and ancient monuments and relics.
