Author Biography

I have spent a large part of my life in education, particularly science. As part of my own business, I author presentations and documents for the pharmaceutical/vaccine industry.

Over the past years, I have felt that life has given me enough trials and tribulations to attempt a fiction novel. Snack van is my first attempt. I think it reflects my underlying fascination of how individuals, who appear normal on the surface, will resort to anything to achieve their goals. If that involves lust, drugs, money, revenge and crime - then so be it!

Who are we as potential successful writers to complain?

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Snack Van by Jay Saph is a story of human behavior and how envy and irritation can make ordinary people dangerous. the story has three people who belong to three different areas and social standings, but are linked together because of one single emotion: desperation. They are ready to go to any lengths to get what they desire and want. The lines are blurred between good and bad; the only thing they worry about is their personal gain.

Jay Saph wrote a modern novel. We have protagonists who are anti-heroes. If they have some good traits, they also have bad characteristics too. However, the writer does not gloss over those. He shows his characters in their true form, and this has made them real. We all have nosy and irritating neighbors and everyone does not get along well. Saph has shown what would happen if we acted on all the revenge we want on our neighbors or colleagues.

I liked the fast paced speed that did not leave me wanting. The story was fast and complete. I will not write more about the story because I do not want to give away more plot. You will have to read it to experience the thrill these people get by acting on their desire for revenge. Snack Van was funny, adventurous and even scary at times. It was a roller coaster ride that I enjoyed immensely. I actually read it twice, but for the sheer pleasure of it. Buy it; you will love it and read it again and again.
