Hello, I’m Jay Fingers and welcome to my blog. I know, I know, they say blogs are dead — well, not this one! I keep resurrecting it and this time I believe I’ll do a better job of keeping it updated.
For those who do not know me, I’m a novelist, journalist, vlogger, editor, and screenwriter. I’ve lived all over the place: I was raised in Memphis, attended college and lived in Miami, then lived in New York City (Brooklyn) for a very long time before relocating to my present home of Los Angeles.
I worked for several years at the New York Post as an editor mainly for features and web stories and Page Six. Additionally, I’ve been a copywriter and editor for various companies and brands including Kidrobot, Bluefly, Cookies, Armani, and Maybelline, just to name a few.
In 2018, I begrudgingly left NYC for Los Angeles in an effort to boost my screenwriting career. Writing and movies have been lifelong passions for me, and I finally decided to pursue my screenwriting dreams without fear or distraction. So far, things are going well.
With this blog, I hope to share with you, Dear Reader, my journey. Not just professionally, but personally as well. I will be posting about my writing journey, who and what has helped me along the way, and, as I’ve gotten into vlogging recently, I will also share my YouTube videos so that you may get a glimpse of my life from that perspective.
Thank you so much for following and championing me on this journey!
