Jim Woods


Jim Woods writes novels authentically set in South Africa—The Lion Killer, The Outlander, and Gemstone (in work); and short stories, stand-alone and in collections, in worldwide milieus. He has traveled worldwide to some eighty countries, therefore has plenty of exotic locales on file to choose for his next one. Much of his world travel has been for big game hunting; this and his background as editor with Petersen’s Hunting, Guns & Ammo and Guns magazines, frequently brings firearms into play in his stories. He’s been at the muzzle-end of guns too; in Angola as prisoner of ugly mercenary Cubans armed with ugly AK-47s, but that’s another story.

Jim Woods lives and writes in Tucson, Arizona.
