Jim Snowden was born in Santa Monica, CA in 1971. As a kid he moved around a lot, spending time in New Jersey, Cleveland, Houston, Los Angeles, and small towns in Utah and Washington State before graduating high school. He started out as a physics major at Lawrence University, but quickly discovered that his passions lay with the arts, so he switched to drama. He sold his first short story to Pulphouse magazine in 1992. He’s since written two novels, Dismantle the Sun and Summer of Long Knives, as well as novellas, short stories, and plays. His work has won the David Guterson award, the first prize in the 2015 Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwright’s Festival, and a spot on StorySouth’s 2004 list of notable fiction. He lives in Bellevue, WA with his sweetheart, Venice.
