Jim and his wife live in Georgia. He's also joined by two cats and two parrots, all of whom believe time spent writing would be much better used by him scratching their heads.

In addition to writing, Jim is a clinical psychologist, enjoys live theater, and builds impossibly high To Be Read piles of books which, when feeling neglected, his cats enjoy knocking down.
