Jim Gullo is an author and journalist from McMinnville, Oregon, where he lives with his wife, sons, a dog named Louis and a rabbit named Fat Boy who is pure dynamite. His latest novel, GROUCH BAG, is set in his home town and in New York City of 1908. Jim has written about many things during a long career as a book and magazine writer. He has scuba dived with sharks in Tahiti, picked grapes in Burgundy, France, climbed mountains in Switzerland, golfed in Scotland, hung out with sumo wrestlers in Tokyo, imagined traveling in the South of 1855, and eaten at the finest pastry shops in Paris, among many other things. His books include a memoir about teaching baseball to his son, the as-told-to autobiography of the first African-American pro golfer, a novel about love and loss, and a loving tribute to the Marx Brothers written for younger readers.
