Joseph Clay’s Book Reviews/Interviews
Joseph Clay’s Complete Catalog
Demons of the Jungle
Joseph Clay was born in Newnan, the county seat of Coweta County, Georgia, a small town south of Atlanta, on April 28, 1960. Joseph is the second son―but also the oldest as his older sibling died only months after being born―of John Tillman Clay and Virginia Imajo Coalson Clay.
Joseph began his professional career, not as a writer but an engineer in 1982. He worked in this field until his retirement in 2014. In 2009 for therapeutic reasons Joseph began to dabble in writing. He began his journey by starting a WordPress blog titled Mind Over Matter – My Mind is the Only One That Matters. He covered controversial current events, along with three things you never discuss in a crowded room: sex, religion, and politics. Joseph’s blog was geared toward the middle-class man and his struggles, as he was in the same boat.
Joseph decided in 2012 to take writing a step further and write a novel while on vacation and over weekends. Toward the end of that year he finished West on the East – Noon Judgment. The rejection letters he received along with the advice in those letters made him have second thoughts about publishing a book.
In 2013 he began implementing some of the advice he had received. The first step to shut down Mind Over Matter – My Mind is the Only One That Matters. 2013 was also the year Joseph took the advice of one of the publishers and started writing a story under 50,000 words. 2014 was Joseph’s break-out year, so to speak. He retired from engineering and completed the story he had started in 2013, Demons of the Jungle launching his career as a full time author. Joseph and his family reside in Nashville, Tennessee.
