About Jim Infantino

I have spent most of my life as a touring songwriter. The music of my band, Jim's Big Ego, has been featured on NPR multiple times and I enjoy a cult following. Typically, when inspiration for a story struck, I wrote a song. Some years ago, the inspiration for a longer story hit me, and I decided to write a novel.

When I'm not out touring, I write code and create websites for artists and small businesses. I live in Boston, MA with my wife and two young daughters.

I am driven by the need to create something new and original. I have always been this way. In my songwriting career, I have endeavored to write lyrics that will catch the listener and encourage them to try out a new perspective on life. This is what drives my writing now. Speculative Fiction tends to focus on negative trends, but creating a compelling dystopia doesn't interest me. Like the present, the future will be a mix of good and bad. I try to imagine the good that might arrive in spite of all the bad because imagination is the first part of creation.
