Author Bio:​

Jim grew up on the shores of western Florida, and he spent much of his childhood swimming in shark-infested waters long before the movie “Jaws” put a scare into everyone. At the time, he probably was too skinny to attract a bull shark’s attention. About ten other boys Jim’s age lived on his same street, and they hung out morning, noon and night playing the usual sports that young boys love — football, baseball, “kill the carrier,” etc. — but as a group they also played fantastical games that contained magic, monsters and superheroes. It was in this setting that Jim’s imagination was born and nurtured.

Jim’s latest works are books 1 and 2 of a teen fantasy adventure trilogy titled “Dark Circles,” which is about a group of kids who are transported to a magical land where it can be deadly to sleep. Book 1 titled “Do You Believe in Magic?” is now available on Amazon and officially launched on May 25, 2023. Book 2 titled “Do You Believe in Monsters?” debuted on Oct. 30, 2023. Book 3 titled “Do You Believe in Miracles?” is set for April 2024. The “Dark Circles” series is appropriate for ages 13 and older. This is a great coming-of-age series for fans of J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, and Brandon Sanderson.

Jim is the author of “The Death Wizard Chronicles,” an action-packed, six-book epic fantasy for mature readers that was published by Bell Bridge Books. This series is appropriate for ages 18 and older.

Jim lives in a valley surrounded by mountains in the Southern Appalachians. He was previously an award-winning journalist at several large newspapers and a communications director at Clemson. He loves to hike to the peaks of mountains and has even been known to hug a tree or two.
