My work and my hobbies are not the same thing...
My work as a writer is around the edges of the rest of my life. But I make room for it when I get the bug.
I have published 6 books in hard copies, and 15 titles as e-books.
The themes vary: there are a couple of short children's books with illustrations. There are two novels for "teens and older". Then there are two "historical fiction" that is purposely distorting the actual events to have fun with them. And then there is the "straight non-fiction" as well.
The non-fiction cover themes from Magic and clowning, to Biblical studies and Theology. You can find them all here:
Scroll down to under the bio to get my list of e-books.
My community is... well... the world, I guess. I believe that we need to live and let live; share the planet; see others the way we want to be seen by them... all that.
Those who hold grudges, especially when they are "historic" - are not only missing out on the joy of living, but they are damaging themselves and those around them. Transferring hatred and prejudice, racism or sexism to others, is holding the world back from being the truly wonderful place it could be.
But hey... others won't think that way, and I have to live as neighbors, with them, just as I want them to live as neighbors with me.
I am very open to feedback: positive or negative...
Well, positive is easier to handle, but without the negative how would any one get any better at what they do?
So write back to me; share your thoughts; do the whole "constructive criticism" thing, if you like. I have a pretty think skin. (I ran in a couple of elections in years gone by... and my goodness that teaches you to have a thick skin! The crap that gets said about you! - but that's another story).
You can also find me on Facebook. The page is called: Jim Reiher Books and other Writings.
I also have a twitter account that I am not using much... but if I get lots of followers - well then .... the sky is the limit!
