Come Ask Jim Henry Some Questions

Introducing Jim Henry!


This is what Amazon Author Central says about Jim Henry:


Jim Henry has been writing fiction ever since he learned to read in second grade. He completed his first “book” – a 65-page hand-written story titled “Time Warp” when he was in seventh grade.

He continued to write story after story all through his teenage years, before going to college to study broadcasting and journalism.

Through his 20’s and into his 30’s, Jim was busy writing things other people wanted him to write. He worked for eight years as a daily newspaper reporter for newspapers in Maine, Massachusetts and Connecticut. In between jobs, he attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, where he received an M.A. degree in journalism history.

When Jim was 34, he was seriously injured, and it was during his recovery that he learned of the ancient form of eastern medicine known as Reiki. While he was receiving an energy healing treatment, Jim had a vision of a man dressed entirely in black, with his arms outstretched, standing before the Atlantic Ocean. In Jim’s vision, the man conjured the largest tsunami in recorded history, inundating the entire east coast. Every city from Portland, Maine to Key West, Florida was devastated.

Jim opened his eyes with a look of fear and shock on his face, prompting the energy therapist to ask what was wrong. He told her of the vision, and she responded, “You have got to write about this.”

That scene, featuring a villain whom Jim named Leviathan Avalon, became the opening scene of the first book in the Universal Life Force Series, titled, “Antiquity Calais: Standing at Armageddon.”

Jim has subsequently published the second book in the series, titled “Antiquity Calais Ascending Olympus,” and he is presently writing two more installments, titled “Antiquity Calais and the Children of Light,” and “Antiquity Calais and the Wrath of the Cryptids.”

Jim is a single father of four, and he has two stepsons whom he loves like his own children. Each child will have a book dedicated to him or her, so there will be at least six books in the series.

Jim lives in Florida and teaches online, allowing him the flexibility needed to be a hands-on dad for his children.

    Jim, have you ever done transcendental meditation? If so, is that why you have Antiquity and the team using it as their means of travel? Also, if you have, is it as an amazing experience as it’s reported to be?

  2. Wendy Miller says:

    With 4 children, how do you find time for everything you do? I’m also a single parent, with only 2 kids, that I homeschool and I find that that there are days I want to hide in my closet or run away and join the circus for a simpler life. How do you do it with 4?

    Aside from giving you the vision that prompted you to write this series, what other benefits has Reiki given you?

    Did the accident change how you felt about writing and your life? Was it one of those things that made you realize you should be writing, or were you already doing so (to a point, anyway) and the accident just a bump in the road?

    • Wendy Miller says:

      Oops…fingers too fast for brain. lol

      That last question should have been: Was it one of those things that made you realize you should be writing books instead of the other stuff you’d written, or were you already doing so (to a point anyway) and the accident was just a bump in the road?

    How much are you Antiquity Calais?

    Do you believe in a personification of Satan as in your novels? I’m no Satanist or anything, but I really liked your portrayal of him. Does that make me evil? I think you’d write a great comedy about Satan in an uncomfortable situation (I dunno, evil in-laws or something).

    Where do you see the Antiquity Calais series going? Where will it end? Make it big, please.

  4. Who is your favourite author?
    What’s your writing process – do an outline or jump right into the story and see where it takes you?
    How do you come up with the names for your characters?
    What is the most difficult part of the writing process for you?

  5. Jenny says:

    Do you still receive Reiki treatments or practice meditation before starting a new book or do the ideas just come naturally?

  6. Jo Linsdell says:

    What part of the writing process do you enjoy most?

  7. angus48 says:

    What influence does boy wonder have on the topics for your works?

  8. Soooo, you are coming out with a new book that talks about your double life! Tell us something about what it was like to be two people.

  9. Edward Forrest Frank says:

    2) Jim, do you have plans or ideas for writing other novels that are not part of the Antiquity Calais series?

    3) What characteristics do you look for in science fiction/fantasy books written by other people that makes it worth reading?

    4) What flaws or annoyances makes you dislike a book written by other authors?

    5) What is your favorite kind of rock and why? (I really like limestone.)

  10. Edward Forrest Frank says:

    What kind of a weirdo has two first names?
