Jay and his writing partner, Mike Milligan, sold their first freelance script to Norman Lear’s Good Times and were hired on staff at The Jeffersons where they began movin’ on up from Writers to Producers to Showrunners.

Most recently, Jay published Deadeye, a cowboy comedy novel with heart offering a tip of the Stetson to Don Quixote.

Jay created and continues to develop the classic Sherlock Holmes board game 221 B Baker Street, which has sold over 3 million copies in nine different countries.
