About Me
I am married with three children (who seem to be slow in producing the next generation). I own a consulting company that works with shiftwork operations (www.shift-work.com). I travel about 150,000 miles a year and do a lot of my writing on airplanes. I have been with WDC for over 2 years. During that time I have written almost daily. Before that, I only thought about it. This is my favorite website. The people here are great.
Type of Writer
I like science fiction but don't hold me to that.
Writing Style
Someone once called my writing "masculine." I am not sure what that means.
Interests
Family, friends, writing, my dog (good boy!), hiking, golf, travel, reading, coaching (high school wrestling), blogging (jimdillingham.blogspot.com)
