Jim McWilliams was born on May 31st, 1938 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, in the heart of the prairies. He spent much of his early life in a homesteader's lean-to perched above a bend of the Moose Jaw Creek.
Jim grew up loving the prairies and the outdoors. There, bed-time stories were tales of his Grandmother Norgate's family in England. His paternal grandfather had survived an encounter with Sioux from the Little Bighorn, and one great-grandfather served in the Northwest Rebellion of 1885.
Jim's current passion is writing and editing The MacHugh Memoirs, a seven-book historical adventure series featuring Rory MacHugh - piper, warrior, spy and much-adored ladies man - whenever he isn't getting himself into trouble with history's notables, like Napoleon Bonaparte, The Duke of Wellington, Tecumseh and Davy Crockett.
James L. McWilliams is a member of SOCAN, Canadian Authors Association Vancouver Branch, BC Pipers Association, Society for Army Historical Research (British) and Tabitha (Canadian volunteer workers in Cambodia).Website: www.jlmcwilliams.comBook(s):
