Welcome to the online home of Jay Antani, an author of books (The Leaving of Things, Edge of Light, the upcoming Transcendent, coming June 6).

I’m also an editor, skilled in story craft and in polishing both fiction and non-fiction manuscripts of all genres. As both a writer and an editor, I have experience in the YA, Thriller, Science Fiction, Horror novel genres as well as with academic essays, short stories, plays, poetry, and memoirs.

My latest, the novella, Transcendent, is due to be out on June 6. It’s an interstellar survival adventure but not my first foray into the sci-fi genre. That would be my 2020 release, Edge of Light, a sci-fi adventure flavored with horror, conspiracy, action. The book has garnered praised from readers and critics alike. To read more about the book, check out the Edge of Light page.

I began novel writing with The Leaving of Things (Lake Union, 2014) is a YA coming-of-age saga about East-West culture-shock, following how an Indian-American teen, transplanted from the U.S. to India in the late 1980s, learns to come to terms with his Indian roots and his American dreams as he takes command of his own destiny.
