Author of the Texas Ranger Jeremiah Spur mystery / detective series, Hime's blog gabs about his and ohers writing, his and others lives.
He says in About:
James Hime is a writer and entrepreneur who lives in Texas with Paulette, his beloved wife of thirty-five years. The Himes have two grown sons, one on Wall Street and the other in Hollywood.
Jim makes his living as a Principal in a Houston-based real estate private equity firm. He is a survivor of an infamous terrorist attack, the Great East Coast Blackout of 2003, a few days at Burning Man 2008, a couple of start-up businesses, an outright business failure and attendant Chapter 7 bankruptcy (which became the subject of an article in the nation's leading financial newspaper), multiple household relocations, including twelve years of exile on the East Coast, the death of an aged and beloved golden retriever (whom he still misses) and almost twenty years of practicing tax law.
He loves reading great writers, running distances to the onset of exhaustion, listening to all kinds of music and drinking Bombay Sapphire martinis on the rocks with olives, preferably the japaleno stuffed variety. It was once said of him that he believes anything worth doing is worth doing in excess, but this is no longer true, if it ever was."
