Jim was born in Seattle, but he's lived most of his life in California, though he did live on the east coast and in Europe for a while. From a very early age he made up stories in his head, but he never considered writing. In his family you went to college, got a degree in something useful and got a real job. So he got a Ph.D. in optical engineering, and went to work as a research scientist. But he was still making up those stories in his head, so he wrote the first draft of A Choice of Treasons, and as he says, "It was 250,000 words of pure, unmitigated crap. It was terrible: poorly written, poorly plotted, shallow characters that no reader could come to care about. It was the hardest decision I ever mad ... read more

I'm now working on the next fifteen books, which include a six-book fantasy series based on Dreams. It's fair to say that I'm going to be around for a while.

"If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance." -- George Bernard Shaw
My family is a vibrant source of material for me. I’m sure it is like many others - full of hope, joy, defeat, despair, violence, insanity, kitchen surgeries, branding with a heated knife, auto accidents, drug abuse…well, maybe it’s not like many others. But it is mine and I love my family. I will also bet that my family stories at Thanksgiving and Christmas are more interesting than most.
But it is only fair to say that my own twisted procession of questionable choices and companions have given me just as much material. I wouldn’t change any of it.
