About I.M. Tillerman

I.M. Tillerman was borin in 1944 in South Dakota in his great-grandmother’s house. Most of his childhood was spent living on farms near Sioux Falls.

In the early 1970’s, after graduating from Augustana and Purdue, Tillerman was hired as a full-time English Instructor at a college in a suburb of Chicago; for twenty-nine years, he taught Composition and Literature there as a Professor in the English Department. He took early retirement and since then has been a full-time author.

In the early ‘60’s, while in the Marines, Tillerman married his high school sweetheart, and had a daughter. After his first wife died tragically, he remarried and had two children.

Tillerman states that the most profound literary influences on him as a writer are the very authors he taught about in college for three decades: Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, Melville, Twain, Fitzgerald, and Tennessee Williams. The two strongest literary influences on him are the poet, Emily Dickinson, and Hemingway, who wrote: “A writer should be of his great probity as a priest of God. He is either honest or not…, and after one piece of dishonest writing, he is never the same again” (Amen, Papa).
