Read full description of the books:
Paul Conklin is a rather ordinary, thirtyish fellow, sharing his ordinary, present-day San Francisco apartment with the ghosts of his dead wife and daughter, Suzanna and Cloe. Suzanna is cooking for him again, and Cloe's bouncing around the apartment in her school uniform, and things are almost back to normal. But a piece of Paul realizes he's really just plain nuts, or at least that's what he thinks. He has no idea that a Primus caste demon from the Netherworld covets his soul, and that he's going to have to take a crash course in killing big, bad hoodoo demons, or lose his soul for all eternity.
For Paul, magic and ghosts exist only in fantasy stories, and he thinks Suzanna and Cloe are just hallucinations, that he's losing his mind. He doesn't realize that he's spontaneously using powerful sorcery to bring them back, and that when Suzanna's ghost cooks for him, he's actually conjuring real food for his table. But his ignorant and unknowing exercise of unprotected sorceries and wizardry has drawn the attention of the denizens of Faerie, and some powerful mortal wizards. And since Paul exhibits certain unusual abilities, they think he is either himself a demon, or at least demon possessed, so they want him dead. There's also a Secundus caste demon from the Netherworld that's crossed over to the Mortal Plane and has been feeding on human souls for centuries. It merely wants to possess Paul's soul. So everyone wants Paul dead, or possessed, and the poor, dumb fool just doesn't realize what's about to hit him.

Read information about the authorJim has nine published SF&F books and he'll be releasing his tenth, Never Dead Enough, the 3rd in The Dead Among Us series, early next year. His first success came as a self-published writer when Child of the Sword went word-of-mouth viral about four years ago. He was able to quit his day-job as a running-dog-lackey for the bourgeois capitalist establishment, and work for himself as a fulltime writer. He says his new boss is a real jerk--so demanding. The self-pub success also led to traditional contracts with Open Road Integrated Media, and Harper Collins Voyager.
Jim is also a scientist with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering; his specialty is laser physics. He has a big pet peeve regarding lasers as weapons in science fiction. He spent decades working in the laser and electro-optics industry, even did some research on laser weapons in the 80's. And when writers use a laser as a weapon in a story, they invariably get it wrong, usually by violating some basic law of physics. Jim gives a presentation on laser weapons, and what writers do wrong--no names please.
Jim was born in Seattle, but he's lived most of his life in California, though he did live on the east coast and in Europe for a while. He now resides in Arizona with his wife Karen and three little beings who claim to be cats: Tilda, Julia and Natasha. But Jim is certain they're really extra-terrestrial aliens in disguise.
From a very early age he made up stories in his head, but he never considered writing. In his family you went to college, got a degree in something useful and got a real job, so he did the Ph.D. thing. But he was still making up those stories in his head, so thirty years ago he sat down and wrote a science fiction novel, and as he says, "It was the worst thing he's ever read." It was the hardest decision he ever made, but he literally threw it away and turned to other writing projects.
Science has always been a passion of Jim's, but writing is an addiction. In April 2016, Of Treasons Born, the prequel to A Choice of Treasons, was published by Open Road Integrated Media, and in August The Thirteenth Man was published by Harper Collins Voyager. He just finished The Witch of Val d'Ossa, the first book in The Valley of Bones series. Right now he's working on By Treason Forged, the 2nd book in The Treasons Cycle, The BlackSword Regiment, a new military science fiction series, and the 2nd book in The Valley of Bones.
Jim intends to keep on writing and publishing more stories, but no laser weapons.
