J. A. Allison (Jay) is an avid reader, writer, bibliophile, performing enthusiast, Indigo child, retired rockstar, indie spiritualist, and self-taught, multi-instrumental musician born and raised in Austin, TX.
He lives a content, solitary life of writing and practices a no-bullsh*t life of spirituality and mindfulness. If he isn’t running Austin’s Memoirists United or a Refuge Recovery meeting, you’ll find him lost in 15-19th Century Russian, French, or English fiction literature—Defoe, Lawrence, Nabokov, Zola, and Balzac being among his favorites.
He currently resides in Lakeway, a mildly-pretentious town outside of Austin, with his family and dog, Cosmo.
