Jim Ringel lives in rural Colorado with his sidekick and teacher, Rascal the Tibetan Terrier. When not writing fiction, he can be found hiking, biking, and skiing in the Colorado mountains, or sitting still and meditating at home.

Jim is the author of the Lama Rinzen Mystery series. Book 1 of the series-49 Buddhas-is coming in May, 2018. Each book takes place in one of the six Buddhist Realms--either the Hell Realm, the Hungry Ghost Realm, the Animal Realm, the Human Realm, the Warring Titan Realm or the God Realm.

In each book Rinzen must solve a crime and learn the lesson of the realm. In solving the crime, he will in evidently be killed, so that he may be reborn into the next book and the next realm.

"This was a wonderful book, one of which I didn’t want to end. An amazing tale about a dysfunctional family with so much pain and heartache, and such a yearning to find love. Animals provide that love for all of them, in different, but profound ways. " Read more of this review »
