Jim Meeks-Johnson is a life-long science fiction reader who loves stories grounded in real science that explode into new visions of reality. He began writing science fiction around 2010. His short stories soon earned Honorable Mentions in the L Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest in 2012, 2014 and 2015. His first publication was By the Numbers in 2015. He is a past slush pile reader for Flash Fiction Online, and is a writer for SciFutures. He is currently writing a novel set in the same universe as By the Numbers, but a hundred years later, after the aliens have arrived.
Jim grew up on a farm in Iowa. He has degrees in mathematics and psychology–and “mathematical psychology”–and has worked for many years as a software developer in a think tank for medical informatics research at Indiana University.
