God Bless America 2015
The writings of Jim E. Reames

 

???????????????????????????????

Who am I, and what am I about? I am an ex-deputy sheriff who went into data processing back in the 1970s, while my bride (LaDon) went into retail jewelry.  I took up writing novels as a hobby back in 1992, then witnessed a remarkable success with my first hardback “Valley of the Dry Bones.”

In the mid-1990s, I served as the Mayor’s Assistant in the City of Caldwell, only to learn local politics was too stressful.  So, today I work as an “Incident Handler” inside the Department of Transportation Security Operations Center, in Leesburg, Virginia, doing so remotely from Idaho.  LaDon and I own LaDon’s Fine Jewelry, located behind JC Penney’s in Nampa, Idaho.  She and I are Christians; and I am a very strong advocate of preserving the Constitution of the United States of America, especially the 2nd Amendment.

Because of the financial obligations of raising a family, I had to wait until I was in my 50s before I was able to pursue my master’s degree in criminal justice at Boise State University, for the sole purpose of researching and writing a thesis on organized crime, asymmetric war, and international terrorism, right at the height of 911. So, I’ve been around a few years.

My son, Steve Reames, resides in Boise and my son, Jim M. Reames, is employed at Evans Bank in Nampa. Our daughter Angy (Reames) Hawkins works at the store with me and her mom.  Because of our longevity in SW Idaho, the family name Reames is well established and favorably reviewed.  My daughter Becky (Reames) Jackson, lives with her husband and family in the SW corner of the state of Washington.  Chelsea Reames is with the Lord.

Being a self-published author, it is next to impossible competing with the big name authors. So I don’t try. The way I see it, they can compete with the fact I market my writing for the lowest possible price Amazon will allow, and FREE as often as I can.  That’s because I do not write for a profit.  Like an artist who paints, my love of writing is something personal. It has become my way of looking at the world.  Being a career analyst, I oftentimes take known facts and attempt to project where fact will lead society, government, and even religion where, more often than not, my predictions prove as being accurate.  In doing so, I attempt to connect with my reader base, hoping you will use word of mouth, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to let your friends, relatives, and others know what you think about my writing.  I am told by many that I am a very skilled author.  Be that as it may, I simply write to express emotion, fear, love, and creativity.

My 1992 prediction of America in 2015.  We become a Police State.  Now, 23 years later, we are almost in that “Valley.”  This novel predicted the 2015 California drought like I stepped from 1992 into 2015 and took pictures.  This book is controversial because, back in 1992, I predicted current day liberal victories, even a taxation of the church tithe.  It’s a very hard book for some to read.  Some people will like and agree with it.  Others will hate what I saw and predicted.

This story takes place in Boise, Idaho.  The church in this picture is a painting of the church on the campus of Boise State University.

I have been a Christian for over 50 years, and I believe we are going to witness spiritual warfare like the world has never before seen.

A Christian novel written for the LGBT community.image description

My 3rd novel, a sequel to “Valley of the Dry Bones” and “GBA2015″.  This is a continuation of the story, where half of the book describes life on Earth after the Rapture, and the other half describes what I’d like Heaven to be like.  In this story one of the new arrivals in Heaven comes straight out of the LGBT community in San Francisco, to communicate God loves all of us.

 Bedrock – 1960

Most popular with my readers.Cover Photo
My 4th novel, recalls a day on the river as a teenager back in July 1960.
This novel records what it was really like being 15, during the Cold War, before the war in Vietnam, before cell phones, computers, iPads, and big government interference, when we teenagers spent entire days swimming, playing, flirting, and loving, without parental oversight.   We were FREE!   “Baby boomer” readers will love it!

Come read, and she will feel it again.  But this is not a book about sex.  It’s a book about teenage feelings, fears, doubts, life, death, love, trusts, and camaraderie, long before cell phones and modern technology.  Before Vietnam.

California Drought   (Coming in Sept-2015)

image description

image description

When California suffers its worst drought in a 1,000 years, millions of people are forced to leave, creating an instant crisis in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, and as far east as Oklahoma and Texas. Overnight the governors of those states are forced to lock down their borders to prevent the overnight relocation of some 15-20 million people, while the president orders the theft of water from across state lines, starting in Oregon. This is the “Dirty 30’s Dust Bowl” in reverse, but the neighboring states cannot accommodate this rapid change. Oregon’s Democratic Governor, Jim Peabody, becomes militant, as he tries to protect his state, its precious water, its people, its tradition, its private and public property, and its long standing heritage. In the middle of all this, the president calls for a repeal of the 2nd Amendment, and she asks Congress to tax the church tithe to help pay for the crisis, while the world’s 8th largest economy implodes, first pulling down the American economy, then the Pacific Rim’s.

Martial law is declared when America witnesses construction of emergency “Drought refugee relocation centers” that look like the WW-II style Japanese internment camps of WW-II.

“California Drought” is a novel based on reality. It reads like a well written prediction.

 

Seeds of Love   Still being written

My 6th novel, is about the true Vietnam era love-triangle involving three of my teenage friends, when we were growing up in Oroville, California, in the 1960s.  Jim N. and  Tom B. both love the younger beauty-queen, JoAnn.   While JoAnn tries to survive alone, without her lover Jim, and other best friend Tom, both men go to Vietnam only to return different people.  Meanwhile, she gets entangled in a domestic abuse marriage.  Satan tried to kill them.  But God would not allow it.  This story is based on real Christian faith events.  This slightly enhanced story is as I witnessed it.

Expected publication date:  September, 2015
