The Who, What, Where, When, Why and How

Welcome to JR Hamilton Books. I don't know how you found me but I am certainly glad you did. Please, feel free to browse the site and if any questions or comments come to mind feel free to drop us a note.

I am JR Hamilton, better know to most people as Jim. I once thought I would like to be known as "JR" until the series Dallas came along and JR Ewing stole the idea and destroyed any further use of that as a moniker.

Much like the character of TJ in my stories I am from South Texas and spent most of my young life in and around Corpus Christi. I have always been in love with that part of the country and, as you get to know me, you will discover what has kept me from returning to make my home. Further, like my character, I joined the Navy when I was quite young but, unlike TJ, I chose to make a career of it and retired in 1986.

My character and I share another love and that is motorcycles. I started riding when I was fourteen and finally acquired a license when I was sixteen after being stopped by a local officer and ticketed for not having one. I have ridden in Texas, California, Virginia and many places in between and beyond. I love the feeling of freedom and loneness I have even when riding with a large group; I love the comradeship among fellow bikers and despise the disagreements between different factions of the biker community due to the type of motorcycle, club affiliation or anything else that causes disruption in the joy of riding.

So, now you know a little about me, and you will learn more, but in the meantime enjoy the site, and if you own a motorcycle you are particularly proud of, please, send us a picture and we will be happy to add it to the fan gallery along with any information you include.

Ride Free and keep it between the ditches.
