Jay teaches chemistry and physics to high school students, where he often finds inspiration for stories in classroom discussions. Not surprisingly, his stories often deal with alien biochemistry, weird physics, and their effects on the people who interact with them. Many of his stories have appeared in Analog, with others in Strange Horizons, Daily Science Fiction, and various anthologies. You can follow him on Twitter @JayWerkheiser or read his (much neglected) blog at http://jaywerkheiser.blogspot.com.
