Jim Mastro

Biography

I’ve rescued wild dolphins, trained seals and sea lions, scuba-dived in the gloom under 15 feet of ice, done stand-up comedy, directed plays, spent winters in Antarctica, traveled the world, and cheated death more than once. I speak a little French, un poco Spanish, a bit of German, and a few words of Japanese and Navajo. I’ve been a biologist, professional dancer, laboratory manager, college professor, drummer in a band, professional diver, research assistant, photographer, surfer, and water skier. And, of course, a writer.

This is the short form. For more, see www.JimMastro.com/Bio

My writing (and reading) interests are eclectic. I find almost everything interesting, but I am particularly drawn to science fiction. The only limit to science fiction is imagination, which means there is no limit at all to what is possible.
