Jay Key

JAY KEY knew at a young age that he wanted to be the world's first professional wrestler turned fraternity president turned digital media executive turned Society of Vertebrate Paleontology-approved blog writer turned science-fiction comedy author. At various points, Key called Dallas, San Francisco, and Los Angeles home--but it wasn't until a move to Chicago that writing professionally became a reality. Authoring a serialized version of The Adventures of Duke LaGrange and a blog on the paleobiological accuracy of dinosaurs in pop culture, Key used that momentum to complete the popular* How to Pick Up Women with a Drunk Space Ninja in 2017. It debuted with Star Wheel Books in 2018 and has spawned three sequels and a collected works edition.

Jay now lives in a suburb of Dallas-Fort Worth with his wife, Shelley, their daughter, Finley, and their French bulldog, Olive.

Jay is a member of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America.
