In 2020, Jay's Sherer's time travel novel TIMESLINGERS (co-written by Nathan Scheck) hit Top Seller status on Amazon. A Writer's Digest judge commented that TIMESLINGERS was: "...one of those trailblazing pieces of work that will eventually have plenty of copycats, giving it a place in literary history."
Jay's second novel (also co-written by Nathan Scheck) is a supernatural steampunk western titled DEATH OF A BOUNTY HUNTER. Jay and Nathan released it early as a "Quarantine Edition" on the Kindle during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. A hard copy edition and a full-cast audiobook will be available later this year.
When he wasn't writing, Jay also founded a tech startup and ran a successful entrepreneurship program at a university in Southern California. Teams he has coached in the past have built multi-million dollar startup companies.

In 2016, Jay wrote and produced (alongside co-writer and director, Ben Anklam and co-writer and co-producer, Nathan Scheck) STAR WARS: RIVALS (the fan film, which is available now on YouTube). Jay's short stories have appeared in INFINITE SPACE, INFINITE GOD (and its sequel), and three of his short film scripts have placed within the Top 10 of the 168 Film Project Write of Passage competition.
