ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jay P. Newcomb is a fan of both English and German/Scandinavian history, in particular the epic time period from the year 500 to the year 1066. He has traced his own heritage back as far as the year 1027 to Saltfleetby, during the Anglo-Saxon period of England, and is very proud of his English, Viking, and German heritage. In the 1980s Jay P. Newcomb was stationed in Fulda, Germany with the U.S. Army’s famous 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment (The Blackhorse), and was assigned to Observation Post Alpha along the East German Border—during the final years of the Cold War. In his off time and when not deployed on other operations he was able to see many places, and many castles in central Europe. From his memory of these old and famous places and their brooding structures complete with their statues of gargoyles and from the misty forests of Germany, Jay P. Newcomb has drawn upon many of those elements from his memories and incorporated them into his writing. In the last decade he received an ordination as a Messianic Rabbi and is the author of many works of theology under the Hebrew name Yehoiakin-Barukh ben Ya’ocov. However, his real driving passion is to write his Visigothic saga with at least five unpublished manuscripts waiting in the wings as of this writing, and one in the making. He has built an entire world in this series with many colorful people such as Elves, Dwarves and Gnomes, and talking ravens called Huginn’s Folk. He is also writing spinoff books from the series, and he published a book of medieval alliterative style poetry called Middangeard. He has a couple of secondary projects as well, a series of westerns called, Legend of the Grayriders and a swashbuckling adventure story concerning pirates in the Caribbean Sea called, The Marquis de Roshambeau.
His writing has been influenced and inspired by the works of the great J.R.R Tolkien, and also by the great Norse Sagas, in particular Snorri Sturluson’s Prose Edda, the Volsung Saga and the Saga of Ragnar Lothbrok. The Visigothic Saga is influenced also by the Arthurian tales, and Celtic Mythology. There is a powerful spiritual component, especially among the Elves that is drawn from the works of Kabballah such as the Zohar. The operas of Richard Wagner were also an inspiration for him, and the powerful music in them such as the Ride of the Valkyries, with phrases in many scenes that are intended to invoke that famous and intense piece of classical music. Then there was the television series Vikings, and the music in it, as well as the series, The Last Kingdom, that were very inspiring for him, thus driving his desire to create his own tales of Gothic and Norse glory in a world called Midgard. It is his desire to write great works of literature and for people to enjoy his stories and be entertained, as well as to find the mysterious things which he has embedded within the text from mystical sources if they enjoy a challenge.

Jay Patrick Newcomb was born in Deming, New Mexico, and raised in Carlsbad, New Mexico. From his early childhood, he has been an avid fan of medieval literature such as the Arthurian legends and the great Icelandic Sagas and thus building on the shoulders of these giants, Jay P. Newcomb has put together the great Visigothic Saga which is a multivolume epic worthy of the best which came before it. In the year 2020 he was awarded third place in the New Mexico Veterans Administration Creative Writing competition.
