Pro Media Mag : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Jay Monty :Hi everyone, my name is Jameson C. Montgomery, some of you all might know me as Jay Monty from my child book series. I am from California, but I have a lot of family France.
Every year I take a trip to visit them. I have a young boy and an amazing Wife.
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into writing?
Jay Monty : I have been writing since I was a young boy. I started off doing poems and music lyrics. I have a couple of embarrassing songs on my hard drive somewhere. It wasn’t until my Son was born that I wanted to get back into writing. He is definitely my Life Coach without knowing it. He inspired me to write Children’s books and to teach them the basics of good health. I also have a day time job working at a Hospital, so health topics has always inspired me.
Pro Media Mag : Our readers would like to know about your recent books?
Jay Monty : I just recently finished up what made me an Author. I started the Jay Monty’s Good Health Book series. It’s a collection of books that health-related topics to inspire kids the importance of developing and maintaining good health.
There are a total of 3 books from the series and recently launching the third book titled Jay Monty’s Good Health Book: Get Plenty of Sleep.
I think many parents, childcare workers,and guardians will truly appreciate the book series.
Pro Media Mag : What kind of response you have received from so far?
Jay Monty: I have been blessed with being asked to launch the books in a few local stores and recieved emails from happy parents. Just to add, I also write Adult books too. Excited to have launched my first mainstream Self-Help book titled Jay Monty’s Self-Help Book: Job Stress.
That book is available on Barnes and Noble, iTunes, and Amazon.
Pro Media Mag : What’s the best part of being an writer?
Jay Monty : The best part is the piece of artwork you put into the world. It’s an amazing feeling to go back and see all that you have contributed to the world. All the books
can inspire others in different ways. We all have battles we are facing, big or small, so it’s amazing to see your work being read by others.
Pro Media Mag : You have also launched new Animation series titled ‘Jaye Wellness’. Tell us more about that?
Jay Monty : Yes, I just got into Animation. I am fairly new at it but have fell in love with it. Providing all the voiceovers, story writing, and editing. It’s tiring and draining but man is it satisfying!
I have gotten amazing responses from different people. It is still new so not many people have discovered it much on Youtube. It is also centered towards kids and parents. It teaches the youth on ways to maintain
Wellness and good health in their daily lives. We live in a world now where depression and anxiety has risen tremendously in the youth. Our children need constant molding and mentoring on different topics. This has inspired me to created the Jaye Wellness character.
I plan to go as far as I can with the show. Hoping to get more viewership in the future.
Pro Media Mag : What was the motivation behind inventing ‘Resistakicks’?
Jay Monty : Back in Winter 2018 I designed a shoe called ‘Life Essentials’ that contains a colorway that embodies the “all-you-need” aspects of Life. Green for the trees (oxygen), Blue (water), and Brown (Earth’s surface) to harvest.
Hence the name, ‘Life Essentials.’ I thought after earning my Designer certification, that I wanted to invent a shoe that will help others. I designed and patented a shoe that provides resistance band training all from the inside of the sneaker.
I wanted to develop a way for paraplegics, and athletes, and anyone seeking the need to improve strength training to be able to have access to their Resistance Bands at all times. Patent Pending for 12 months, I am hoping to push this invention off the ground in the next year.
I feel many individuals will benefit this invention.
Pro Media Mag : Anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Jay Monty :Yes. I would like to tell the readers that no matter how crowded the world is, there is always something you can develop to inspire someone. I hope to be an inspiration to many people in the future.
Pro Media Mag : Are you working on any future projects?
Jay Monty : I preparing another launch of a Children’s book that is more activity based. I am also hoping to get Resistakicks out into the mainstream world. And lastly, I have a great book I am developing that helps others with self-doubt. It is going to be exciting end to 2019. I hope by 2020 my readers can really see my work.
