A graduate of Shasta College, Reed College and Humboldt State University, James A. Freeman is a transplanted Shasta County, Californian, who, for forty years, has taught Creative Writing at Bucks County Community College in Newtown, PA. Extensively academically published in composition theory and research and in critical thinking, he has attended Two Year College Association conferences, often presenting, since 1986. Also a prolific creative writer, he is the author of twenty-one books. Prof. Freeman's own favorite fiction titles are Irish Wake: In Loving Memory of Us All (amazon.com, bn.com and googlebooks.com), Ishi's Journey from the Center to the Edge of the World (Naturegraph), Never the Same River Twice (with Phyllis Agins- -Charles B. McFadden Co.), and "Parade of Days" (Xlibris, bn.com, amazon.com). Proud of his daughter Kellie, an avid horsewoman and graduate of Penn State University, Jim lives in Langhorne, PA with his wonderful family and grandkids, travelling as often as he can to see his Mother Lee, and his three terrific siblings, in their beloved northern California mountain-scapes and river-scapes. Jim would like to note, however, that the mid-Atlantic is his home and that he appreciates both American coasts as well as the heartland in between.
