Welcome to the website of Jim Williams the Booker Prize nominated author whose works include Crime Fiction, Who Dunnits, Detective Fiction, Thriller, Murder Mystery, Historical/Romance, Science Fantasy and a guide to writing autobiography; and, while I am at, a popular Speaker on cruises and to Readers’ Groups, U3A meetings and Literary and Philosophical Societies – and (just possibly) a Charlatan. Also, I wrote Lara’s Child, the sequel to Nobel Prize in Literature winning Boris Pasternak’s Dr Zhivago.
