The darkly mysterious and suspenseful abound in Jim Ody's titles. Having had several psychological thrillers and his shorter works exhibited in a few anthologies, I'd dare say he's an author to watch out for this winter. Why? Well, if you like original compelling plots, likeable characters, and twisty conclusions you'll love Jim's books. So without further ado here's a bit more about the man making waves across the genre.
Jim was first published in an English School Textbook in 1987. He won a competition to draw a dog-walking machine. Having won an art competition the year before, he felt that at the age of eleven he had peaked and consequently retired from the world of art.
For 10 years Jim wrote for a number of websites reviewing and interviewing bands in his own unique way, as well as contributing dark poems and comedic features.
He writes dark psychological thrillers that have endings that you won’t see coming, and favours stories packed with wit. He has written three novels and a novella all released by Crazy Ink. He has also contributed to around a dozen anthologies. He has a new book called ‘Mr Watcher’ coming very soon!
Jim has a very strange sense of humour and is often considered a little odd. When not writing he will be found playing the drums, watching football and eating chocolate. He lives with his long-suffering wife and three beautiful children in Swindon, Wiltshire UK.
