Jim Ronson is a life-long traveller and educator. At the age of fifteen he hitch-hiked across Canada and learned more about Canada in one summer than he had ever learned in school. He has explored the nooks and crannies of every province across the country.
When he was in his early twenties he worked in a factory and used the money he earned to backpack across most of Europe, ending his journey in Greece.
He has taught in downtown Toronto, Burns Lake, British Columbia, and most recently, in Whitby, Ontario.
One of his more recent thrilling adventures was running out of air while scuba diving off the Great Wall in Cozumel, Mexico. Fortunately he survived the experience and lived to see a giant eagle ray in the process.
Jim began writing in his teens by publishing a war-gaming zine called “Berserker”.
He later wrote for the varsity newspaper at the University of Western Ontario. He is a graduate of The University of British Columbia and Queen’s University.
Jim’s first works of fiction to be published are two short stories called “Dark Matter” and “The Garden of Dreams”. These stories were published in the spring of 2015 as part of the Hill Spirits Anthology II.
Power and Possessions is his first novel.
