true crime / memoir
Besides being the author of a true-crime memoir, three novels, a book of short stories, and a book of poetry, Jim has been editor of a small weekly newspaper, a police reporter for a large daily, an investigator in a District Attorney’s office and an Attorney General’s office, a licensed polygraph examiner, a web site designer (yeah, he did this one), an instructor and lecturer, publisher of a newsletter for 20 years, and a teacher in adult education.
Jim taught himself to type while in high school, using instructions from a library book. He bought his first computer in the 1970s, an Osborne 1 with a CP/M operating system. He has not been without at least one computer since then.
He and wife Sandy live in Oregon. They have visited the U.K., France, Italy, Greece, the Czech Republic, Hungary, the Cook Islands, Russia, China, and Poland, as well as many cities in the U.S.
