About Jimmy


Bio

Also, I've written two books (copies of the latter are available at Square Books, Oxford), and have a third now being reviewed by a publisher. Stories from the second book were chosen as the basis of a proposed television series, for which a trailer was filmed that is now being...

For 15 years I've taught composition, literature, and creative writing at a local college (Northwest Mississippi Community College, Oxford campus). Along with teaching duties, I've been a newspaper columnist.

Also, I've written two books (copies of the latter are available at Square Books, Oxford), and have a third now being reviewed by a publisher. Stories from the second book were chosen as the basis of a proposed television series, for which a trailer was filmed that is now being marketed to potential vendors.

I'm outstanding at what I do for three reasons: I'm an excellent communicator who possesses a vast vocabulary; I'm an an excellent proofreader; I am extremely skilled in the areas of grammar and syntax.

As a child my mother taught me lessons from the Bible, and from this beginning I developed in intense interest in Bible scholarship.
