Jay Allan is a USA Today bestselling author of roughly 30 science fiction and fantasy books, including the bestselling Crimson Worlds series and the Far Stars trilogy published by HarperCollins Voyager.
A lifetime northeasterner, Jay currently lives in New York City, where he writes from his apartment… and continues to fill small notebooks with ideas for future books.
He has been a voracious reader of science fiction and fantasy for many years, a writer of the same far more recently. His tastes are varied and eclectic, but most often he will be found reading military and dystopian science fiction, space opera, alternate history, and epic fantasy. He is also an avid historian, and is as likely to be reading non-fiction as a novel.
Jay writes a lot of science fiction with military themes, but also other SF and some fantasy as well. His works tend to feature complex characters and lots of backstory and action, always with an emphasis on world-building and extensive detail.
Among other things, Jay writes the bestselling Crimson Worlds series and the Far Stars series published by Harper Collins Voyager.
Jay was an investor and real estate developer for many years before becoming a full-time author. When not writing, he enjoys traveling, running, hiking, and reading.
