Writer
 

When I met Jim, “lasmartboy” was his screen name on AOL. I was drawn to his sense of humor, the fact that he considered himself smart in an era where dumbing down and self-deprecation are considered virtues, and I was attracted to his no-holds-barred commentary.


Jim was born in Long Beach, California. From a very early age he knew he would write, and focused much of his attention toward that goal. Nothing got in his way, not drugs, alcohol or any outside influence kept him from his work. He wrote Monday through Friday, from around 10 in the morning until about 5 in the evening, accompanied by his trusty cat, Fred, doing any necessary research, absorbing the news, and really, the cultural zeitgeist.


This website is dedicated to his memory and the promotion of his works.
