J.L. Doty

Community Foundation for Southern Arizona

In late 2016 Jim finished his 11th Sci-fi novel, "The Witch of Val d’Ossa," and with the release in early 2017 of "Never Dead Enough," the third in the series The Dead Among Us, he has published 10 Sci-fi books.

His first success came through self-publishing, which led to more traditional contracts with Open Road Media and Harper Collins Voyager, and he is actively pursuing what some call the hybrid author model. Jim is also a scientist with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering; his specialty is laser physics.

Scheduled events:
Putting the Science in Science Fiction
Alien planets, distant galaxies, space travel ... For sci fi stories to feel real, authors need to know their science. Our distinguished panel of science fiction and non-fiction writers discuss research, fun facts, the interplay between science and science fiction, and when stuff gets weird.
