Jim Yonker was born and raised in St. Louis County, Missouri, the son of a man who lived through the Great Depression and ended up finding his life’s true calling with the railroad. He handed down this love to his children and it has been a timeless gift that still inspires. Jim credits his high school Senior English college-prep class, his favorite throughout school, and its teacher with inspiring his interest in reading and exploring points of view. He is a 1971 Sociology graduate of the University of Missouri at St. Louis and is the author of the coming of age novel Southern Passage (published in July 2014) and the recently completed sci-fi multiverse drama/adventure The Kellstrumm Paradox.

At other times, especially if I'm absolutely driven to finish up a section in order to move to one I have firm ideas about, I will keep at it and plod along until I've at least written out something acceptable; I usually find it workable to do this and then later on go back and make refinements.(less)
