Jay Requard knows a thing or two about epic journeys. So it’s no surprise that his writing advice feels a little like a call to adventure.
Jay Requard is a wanderer and fantasy author currently in New York. Fed on equal amounts of Socrates, Vyasa, and Ursula K. Le Guin, he has spent time in North Carolina, Colorado, Ireland, and London, as well as other parts of the world. While his interests vary from swordsmanship to space to sacred studies, he is a constant practitioner of meditation and has been known to enjoy most books handed to him. In his spare time he brews, tries to practice better habits, and of course, writes fantasy. He is the recipient of the 2016 Write Well Award for “MASK OF THE KRAVYADS” and a runner-up for the Manly Wade Wellman Award for his sword & sorcery novella, WAR PIGS. His most recent release is the Dark Fantasy collection DEATH & DUST: The Pale Sand Adventures.
In 2020 he will release the pirate fantasy series SALT SONGS and the Urban Fantasy series THE TRIALS OF ST. PATRICK through Falstaff Books, as well as THE TEA MERCHANT trilogy and KINGDOMS OF LIGHT AND GLASS through his imprint, Lookfar.
