About The Author

Jay Newman has been prepping for humor writing ever since he was a Cub Scout helping his dad choose jokes from Boy’s Life magazines to tell at pack meetings. So it’s no surprise that he grew up to be a head writer for the Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader series and has been contributing to those books since 1998. Jay also worked as a developmental editor for Portable Press, where his books won numerous awards—including Uncle John’s Weird, Weird World, named the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award Gold Winner in Humor. Jay lives in Ashland, Oregon, with his lovely wife, Sue. Find him online and on Facebook at JayNewmanWriter.
