About the Author

James R. (Jim) Storey lives in La Jolla, California with Elaine, his wife of 48 years. Jim moved to La Jolla in 2004 after a 38-year career in Washington, D.C. His work there on social policy and federal spending was accomplished in the employ of: the U.S. Congress (the Joint Economic and Senate Budget Committees and the Library of Congress); the Executive Branch (OMB, HEW, and NIH); and research institutes (Urban Institute, Institute of Medicine, Institute for Defense Analyses). He also was Vice President of Chambers Associates, a public policy consulting firm. Jim earned a B.S. in physics and mathematics from the University of Alabama and an M.B.A. from Carnegie-Mellon University.

Jim's career in Washington involved extensive writing for both political and academic audiences that resulted in numerous publications. In retirement, he has applied his writing skills and experience to his own life and that of his only child, Drew, who died tragically at age 28. Jim told that story in "Deadly Mix: An American Dreamer, Mental Illness, and Crisis in Cairo," published as a CreateSpace paperback and a Kindle e-book in 2014.
