Jay Mims is a Carolina native who tends to refer to himself in third person. He accidentally adopted his neighbor's cat, who he named Eartha Kitty, has a love-hate relationship with a lizard named Bob, and may have adopted a second cat named Meowthezar. Jay's roommate is a passive-aggressive Dalek named Steve. He writes books and is far funnier on Facebook then in real life, and is getting the hang of Twitter. Jay writes lighthearted murder mysteries revolving around everyone's favorite private investigator, Dan Landis.
