Jay Stringer was born in 1980, and he’s not dead yet.
His crime fiction has been nominated for both Anthony and Derringer awards, longlisted for Not The Booker, and shortlisted for the McIlvanney Prize. His stand-up comedy has been laughed at by at least three people. He’s English by birth and Scottish by legend; born in the Black Country and claiming Glasgow as his hometown.
Jay is dyslexic, and came to the written word as a second language, via comic books, music, and comedy. Alongside Russel D. McLean, Jay was the first to bring Noir at the Bar to the UK, and he co-hosts the Crime Friction podcast with Chantelle Aimée Osman.
Jay won a gold medal in the Antwerp Olympics of 1920. He did not compete in the Helsinki Olympics of 1952, that was some other guy.
Jay is represented by Stacia Decker at Dunow, Carlson & Lerner.
