A Quincy native is coming back home to share the success of his debut novel. Jay Drescher is a Quincy High School graduate of 1975. On Saturday, May 26 from 11 a.m. to noon, Jay will sign copies of his book, Glasby's Fortune at Potter and Vaughn, 504 Hampshire in Quincy.

Glasby's Fortune is a story of pirates, honor and dishonor on the high seas during the Golden Age of Piracy. It's inspired by real events surrounding two historical figures, Harry Glasby and Bartholomew Roberts.

I'm a huge reader, and I've discovered a love for historical fiction. I've known Jay for years, so I bought a signed copy. You're going to want to read this book! Jay has meticulously researched the subject and weaves fact, fiction and fascinating characters in the story set in the 1700's. It's earned a 4.9 rating from readers on Amazon.

After Jay left Quincy for law school at Mizzou, he joined the Marine Corp where he served as a Judge Advocate in Okinawa, Parris Island and London. Today, Jay practices law in Franklin, Tennessee, just outside Nashville. His wife, the former Amy Holm, is also from Quincy. She's a private invesigator who has been featured on Cooper Anderson's show.

You can buy Jay Drescher's book at Barnes and Noble or Amazon. The Kindle edition is on sale for just $2.99. Better yet, buy the book at the signing party and learn a thing or two from the author himself.
