Jim LeMay is originally from Missouri but has lived many other places. He has engaged in a lot of the vocations and avocations practiced by the characters in his novels—homebrewer, bartender, waiter, land surveyor, civil engineer, land developer—and in some they have not: copywriter, editor, commercial artist, and others best forgotten. About a decade ago, he decided to try writing fiction. He has written four novels and a handful of short stories. His fifth novel, Making the Most of It (Mad Cow Press, 2019), will soon be available for preorder. Jim now lives in the Denver metropolitan area.
