Q. What name(s) do you write under?

A. Whatever the publisher decides to use. I have had works published as Jim Jackson, J M Jackson, James M Jackson and James Montgomery Jackson.

Q. Then why use a 22-character moniker like "James Montgomery Jackson" for this blog, when a simple "Jim Jackson" would do?

A. It’s the name my parents gave me. Have you met other Jim Jacksons? Me too. Some of them were fine people, but none of the others were me.

There are several James Montgomery Jacksons in the U.S. But in a Google search my writing shows up prominently, so it's easier for people to find me that way.

Q. Why do publishers make different choices?

A. My bridge book: One Trick at a Time: How to start winning at bridge is written in a casual style, so the publisher, Master Point Press, used Jim Jackson. My novels use the name James M. Jackson because it matches my website https://jamesmjackson.com and that's what the publisher wanted.

I have to admit that I am responsible for the variation in usage for my short stories.

Q. What fiction do you write?

A. Mostly domestic thrillers with a twist of financial crime featuring justice-seeking characters with heart. I've dabbled in horror and occasionally write fantasy, sci-fi and "literary."

You can read some of my work and learn more about me at my website https://jamesmjackson.com. I also write the blog My Two Cents Worth (before Inflation) to discuss writing, finance and politics (and anything else that seems interesting at the time.) Hop over and check it out.
