Born in St. Louis, MO, Jay Davis has spent his entire life immersed in books-as a reader, writer, editor, bookstore clerk and publisher's representative. He was part of the rep team that launched Tor Books in 1981. After co-authoring two best-selling novels--the recently optioned Sins of the Flesh and the Bram Stoker Award-nominated Bring on the Night--he turned his literary efforts to suspense novels with a spiritual flavor. Parting the Veil, the first of a loosely-connected trilogy, was written in St. Louis, Seattle and Reno, which provide the trilogy's primary settings. The author currently lives in Reno, NV.
