true crime / memoir
Jim has been a polygraph examiner, licensed in the State of Oregon, for more than 35 years. He began the yet uncompleted process of retirement about a decade ago, which permitted him to devote more time to writing, a lifelong commitment. His first novel, The Spy’s Demise, was published in 2010, a 1990s spy thriller with action that traces a path from Moscow to New York. That book was followed by two more novels and a contemplative memoir about the nature of truth, drawing upon criminal case work as a polygraph examiner: Confessions of a Lie Detector - Years of Theft, Sex, and Murder. His most recent work is a play in three acts, Random Contingencies.
All of Jim’s writing is available through Amazon or on order from independent book sellers.
