James (Jim) Milson is an Eagle Scout, teddy bear artist and retired father of four children living on the outskirts of St. Louis, Missouri. When not busy creating teddy bears or bothering a guitar, he writes short stories, taking inspiration from bears created on his worktable, family life and years of woodland and outdoors experience in the Missouri Ozarks Mountain Country. Jim’s blog features other selected short works and poetry.
With notable family roots and history dating back to early Old Virginia, Kentucky, and earliest Missouri territory with a touch of Cherokee, he has been described as an offbeat mix of Mr. Rogers, Andy Griffith, Jeremiah Johnson and Sitting Bull, with a little Crazy Horse thrown in for good measure.
Jim, Little Red Bear and friends are currently in the backwoods working on more stories for the second collection of Little Red Bear adventures coming soon.
