another jim is one of those folks who put his passion for writing on hold while he worked a "real" job and raised a family. Well, the job is finished, the family's been raised, and now he can act as self-indulgent as he damn well pleases!

A closet bibliophile from way back, he favors historical fiction, suspense, mystery, horror, biographies... anything that captures his imagination and keeps his adult ADD at bay.

Loves his wife, loves his life, and thinks he's gonna love being a FanStory contributor. He hopes to become a useful critic, and not an effete, nitpicking nabob of negativism. Of course, he's also depending on others of his ilk to critique his work so he'll become a better writer, so please...don't hold back. If it's awful, please say so, and he'll try harder next time. (This third person stuff is for the birds, ain't it?)

He lives in Upstate NY, and knows snow. He owns a degree in Psychology that he's never used for profit, a set of golf clubs that has seldom seen the sun, and a big screen TV that collects dust, except during football season. He loves music, and often seeks inspiration from the oldies stations on satellite radio. Believe it or not, it works.

That's it. He's spent, you're bored, and it's time to get back to work. That would be short stories for him, with an occasional foray into the business of writing his first novel.

See you on the pages of FanStory!
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make...

another jim: An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, "I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough."

"Pop! What are you talking about?" the son screams.

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old man says. "We're sick to death of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her." With that he hangs up.

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like hell they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this."

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at the old man, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" And she slams the phone down.

The old man hangs up his phone, too, and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "they're coming for Thanksgiving. Now what do we tell them for Christmas?"
