James J. Griffin, although a native New Englander, is a lifelong horseman, Western enthusiast, and amateur historian of the Texas Rangers. His large collection of Texas Ranger artifacts is now in the permanent collections of the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum. Jim has traveled extensively throughout the western United States and Canada, and his research has taken him to many of the famous Old West towns, such as Tombstone, Deadwood, Cheyenne, Pecos, and many others. While Jim's books are fiction, he does try to keep them as historically accurate as possible within that realm. Jim's books are traditional Westerns in the best sense of the term, with strong, moral heroes. Most of his novels are suitable for almost all ages.
When not writing, Jim can almost always be found in the saddle. He is a member of Western Writers of America and Western Fictioneers. He divides his time between Branford, Connecticut and Keene, New Hampshire, when not out West.
