About the author (2009)

Jim Cook, a California native who lived and worked over ten years outside the U.S.A., has found a home in Sonoma. Jim's a one-time Titan (his high school mascot), two-time father (both girls), and three-time husband. He has been a gardener for the British Officer's Club in Berlin, taught conversational English in Istanbul at the Grand Bazaar, and coached high school girl's basketball. Jim has played guitar for over forty years, sings nearly on-key, and plays a mean blues harp. A counselor by trade, he worked in the school system for fifteen years before opening his own office in Oakland fifteen years ago, where he continues to be a practicing Marriage Family Counselor.

James King's most recent book is the bestselling biography of Margaret Laurence. He has received numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship and a Killam Research Fellowship.
