Jim LeMay


Following the dictum, “Write about what you know,” the author has worked at many of the same jobs, professions and avocations as his characters – bartender, homebrewer, land surveyor, civil engineer and land developer – and he’s done a few things they have not (artist and newspaper man among them). Most importantly, he’s from Missouri, the land of Mark Twain, Edwin Hubble, Yogi Berra, Robert A. Heinlein and many other memorable Americans, so he knows the inhabitants of his books intimately. Mr. LeMay currently lives in the Denver, Colorado metropolitan area with his wife, Nyla.
