Meet the Author

Jim Hall was born in Atlanta, Georgia at the generational turn of 1960. He was the middle child of a middle class civil servant, who escaped the hardscrabble hills of western North Carolina only courtesy of the United States Marines. He was raised to fear God, respect his parents, expand his mind, love cars and knock people's heads off on the football fields of West Georgia.
Jim was a starting nose guard on the Troy University NCAA Division II Trojans for his duration there under the legendary coach Charlie Bradshaw. Jim and his bride of 27 years, Becky, have three grown children.
