Biography

I was born in Charleston, South Carolina and raised in the surrounding moss covered Low-country . Now retired with my wife, Laura, I like to travel, spend time with children and grandchildren, and try to write an occasional novel. I write in a simple style, maybe even homespun, and with a bit of coziness, not prone to blood and gore. I believe the main purpose of a good novel is enjoyment and entertainment. And if it promotes a comfort food feeling as well, then I am happy. Such is the Jamey Hart Adventure Series. Hope you enjoy!
