DONY JAY was born and raised in beautiful south-central Pennsylvania. Whether it was playing baseball with neighborhood kids in the summers or hockey on a slab of ice in his childhood backyard in winter, sports have been a passion from a young age. Dony excelled at soccer and basketball and played collegiately, earning himself the first-ever Iron Man Award at Penn State University, York Campus. Though he would go on to graduate with a BS degree in criminal justice from York College, he tested into honors English when applying for school and has always had a joy for the written word.


Dony is now a police detective with over 21 years of law-enforcement experience. He has served on a US Marshals Fugitive Task Force and is currently a member of a county-wide Child Abduction Response Team (CART) and his department's forensic unit.


When he's not reading or writing, Dony loves spending time with his family, staying fit, and cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles. He also enjoys the outdoors, great music, and keeping pace with Jovie, his lovable and very active Jack Russell Terrier. Above all, he's a follower of Jesus Christ. He resides in south-central Pennsylvania.
