About the Author

PABLO D'STAIR was born in 1981. At the age of 18 he composed his first novel (October People) for the 3 Day Novel Writing Contest sponsored by Anvil Press. The novel did not win the competition but was published in the subsequent year - along with his second novel (Confidant) - by the infamous and now defunct vanity book-mill Publish America. In the mid-2000's, D'Stair co-founded the art-house press Brown Paper Publishing with his colleague, the novelist, musician, and painter Goodloe Byron. Through this press and its literary journal Predicate, he released the work of more than fifty of his peers along with editions of two dozen of his own books (including Regard, dustjacket flowers, Candour, a man who killed the alphabet, Carthago Delenda Est, and the novella comprising they say the owl was a baker's daughter: four existential noirs). Eventually shuttering BPP, D'Stair founded (KUOBA) press, continuing to publish work by his contemporaries. During this era, his own literary output remained prolific but largely unreleased, though several works were made available as limited-edition print projects and in various electronic mediums (including the purse snatcher letters, the cigarette miscellany, and the five novella comprising Trevor English). Prior to composing Lucy Jinx, D'Stair spent several years as a cinema critic - primarily for the UK site Battle Royale with Cheese - and as an essayist/interviewer for the national newspaper of Sri Lanka's Sunday Observer (through which periodical several of his novella and a story collection were serialized). Also during this period, D'Stair began working as an underground filmmaker in the capacities of writer, director, cinematographer, editor, and performer - the cinematography of his first feature (A Public Ransom) earned an award in international competition at the XIX Internacionlni TV Festival (Bar, Montenegro 2014). Lucy Jinx was initially composed during an eight-month period, the bulk of the text generated during D'Stair's graveyard shifts as security guard for Manheim Auto Auction and during the day while he worked in a call-center for Lancaster General Health. A two-volume 'uncorrected edition' of Lucy Jinx was released in very limited number in May 2016. Final revisions to Lucy Jinx were eventually made during January 2019 and be-tween July and August of that year. This edition marks the definitive version of the text. D'Stair has also written several volumes of poetry, more than four dozen pieces of theatre, written and directed music videos, written and illustrated graphic novels and comic-book series, and produced audio essays. His work across all mediums has often been released pseudonymously. Presently, he lives and writes in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
