I’m Jim Pyre

I consider myself an “Outside of Average” adventurer.

I’m Midwestern by birth. I grew up in Chicago, but thrived in small towns throughout most of my life. I read, I write, and work a “very proper”day job in between.

Emerson once said, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” While I hold that to be self evident, I also know that there are places – above, below, behind, and right beside us, just beyond the reach of our rational senses. They are inhabited, populated, stuffed … with things. You know what I’m talking about…you do. Things! Spooky things. Creepy things. Crawly things. Shadowy things. I’ve seen them…I go looking. They tend to find their way into my writing.

So join me…lets watch them together.
