About Jay D. Hellis
Before trying to build a fictional universe to rival Marvel and DC, Jay D. Hellis was engrossed in anything fantasy or science-fiction based. His influences include Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett and Philip K. Dick, which likely explains why it’s so difficult to pin down an exact genre to his works. Jay D Hellis’ universe is multi-layered – the more you read, the more you can peel and take away with you. Each of his published works are tied together, though the strands could be at either end of a very large rope. He has had several short stories published including “Even Souls Sleep” (found and The Worlds of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Vol 3) and “The Sad Tale of Wooden Annie” which won the runner up for NatCon 2016’s emerging writer’s contest. He is looking forward to releasing his first novel, The Bard and the Glass Sea in the near future.
