Jay Cole is a writer of immense talent and insight. He lives in Vermont on a maple syrup farm with his wife of thirty-two years, Maxine, their three lovely children, Number One, Number Two, and Number Three, and his dog, Worthless. Jay Cole personally wrote this biographical blurb, and he has absolutely no shame about lying like a rug.
. . . That about covers as much of my personal life as I’d like to post on the government’s NSA servers.
(Relax, paranoia is just a hobby!)
My real story is one of laughter. As soon as I learned to read at about age five, I asked Santa for joke books. I wrote my first short story in fourth grade – not a homework assignment. The written word simply appeals to me, especially when it reveals the absurdities of life that so often spontaneously arise in our daily routines.
I’ve written magazine articles, novels and scripts, and a ton of standup comedy. My favorite genres include humor and comedy, romantic comedy, science fiction, and a bit of action adventure, but I have to say that humor and comedy top my list of preferences.
I’ve found that the humor in life is a vital resource that we all share. Everybody laughs, and isn’t that truly marvelous!
Thanks for stopping by.
