Jay Rankin was born in Los Angeles, but he grew up in Hollywood, Ca. He held some amazing jobs. He worked his way through college inside the locked unit of a psychiatric hospital, was a Los Angeles County Probation Officer, worked at several detention camps, was a bouncer at a country and western nightclub in Los Angeles and built custom homes in Connecticut and Las Vegas. Jay studied and received a Master’s degree in clinical psychology. He now lives in Los Angeles and where he is raising his 9-year-old son.
Under The Neon Sky is a gripping, true story about a Las Vegas doorman who works the graveyard shift at one of the major hotels on the Strip. The sights, smells, and page popping characters are unforgettable as we take a journey that will transform how we used to envision the city that never sleeps. We watch as this doorman begins to emotionally break and wonder if he will become broken seeing his friends, his wife, hotel guests, and himself cross too many boundaries in this riveting, page turning story.

Under The Neon Sky: A Las Vegas Doorman’s Story by Jay Rankin gives us a candid look into working in one of the largest hotels in Las Vegas – the MGM. What goes on behind the scenes? People work very hard to make Las Vegas a tourist attraction, focusing on the fun that one can have in Vegas. The bright and shining neon lights. The shows and performances. Not to mention that fun to be had at Casinos. But in today’s society so many people are focused on their own paths, not paying attention to their surroundings, that it is easy to miss the things that are happening right in front of you.
