About the Author
Jay T Harding
Jay lives 2 hours south of Seattle. He served with honor and pride in the US Army from 1977 to 1986 as a Medic and enjoyed a lifetime of service in the healthcare industry. He has an unhealthy fascination with scatology – the study of poop – and is unapologetic. He has always been drawn to the world of taxicabs and at one time drove an original Checker cab. He has seven children, ten grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, and hopes someday to be able to have them all under one roof. He attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He is a Christian who has an insatiable thirst to know God’s will. Despite that, some of his closest friends wholeheartedly confirm that Jay is seriously and sincerely twisted. He tells them “God says He’s got this worked out, this is ok. I’ll just have to do the dishes in Heaven for seven thousand years. Ha! I would have done it for twice that time. What, Lord…?”
Jay’s new book, ‘Sonnets in the Key of Christ (and other scriptural devotions)’ is now available on Amazon and Kindle. It is poetry for and about Christians in the name and love of Christ; ‘Sonnets in the Key of Christ’ is rapturous, intimate, bold in the Word and filled to overflowing with guidance from the Holy Spirit. Half of the poems are sonnets, fourteen lines long, structured in the Shakespearean rhyme scheme, the others an eclectic mix of poetic styles. Every poem of ‘Sonnets in the Key of Christ’ is accompanied with a verse of scripture from the Bible designed to glorify and magnify Christ and God. The book is filled with love, compassion and understanding and will sometimes speak directly to you as you go through the trials and victories of your life. ‘Sonnets in the Key of Christ (and other scriptural devotions)‘ speaks of faith and love and praise and surrender and over one hundred other topics spanning the entire spectrum of Christian life. Whether you are newly born in Jesus’ name or have been a child of God for years, you will enjoy reading it. It will migrate to brick and mortar stores as demand dictates. ‘Sonnets in the Key of Christ (and other scriptural devotions)’ is about God’s love, about prayer, about doubt and assurance, about your relationship with Christ and about salvation.
Jay’s first book, a horror novel, OOBERS: Kalamazoo, through Murder of Crows Publishing, takes you to the very core of evil as he pushes the envelope onto the floor and stomps on it. This book was written before Jay became a dedicated Christian, and reflects the depths of human depravity. Not for the faint of heart.
