Between Surviving in Texas and Living in Mexico
A native Californian, Jim Catanich is a freelance writer / web programmer dividing his time between surviving the summers in Texas and living in Mexico. Jim Catanich was raised in Southern California just south of Laguna Beach on the beach. "You know just up the fire trail from Aliso Creek. - James Catanich
"It was three minutes to the beach or 15 minutes to school. Yea... we went surfing a lot." - Jim Catanich
Then Jim moved from sunny SoCal to even sunnier Dallas, Texas. Jim no longer remembers why since that part of his memory has been baked away over time. But come winter and under the cover of darkness, he escapes Dallas for three months, fleeing to the gulf coast home of a friend just south the border where the solitude allow him to write that "great novel".
"As long as there is the internet, I can go any where and keep in touch with my clients... Anyway, this way I don't have to wear shoes..." - Jim Catanich.
As a writer and blogger, Catanich's writings have been in the forms of humor for both online audience and print.

He's an avid traveler, photographer and feels most at home around a campfire or anywhere close to the equator. "Anywhere that doesn't necessitate flannel sheets for 6 months of the year." - Jim Catanich
The Hunt For Gloria Bucharde
"When an old lover and her newish boyfriend showed up at my front door, I just figured they need some place to stay for a while. Instead, I was asked to join them to hunt down my ex girlfriend, Gloria. It seemed she had taken something of valuable from them. A full blown mainframe computer hard drive containing the Mask Designs and Tooling from five of the top semiconductor companies in Silicon Valley." - Jim Catanich, The Hunt For Gloria Bucharde
PC499c - Theft Of Trade Secrets
"It was just a favor. Then somehow against all odds, or perhaps in perfect harmony with the macabre humor of the malevolent spirits of amor, I ended up in my own 'A Tale of Two Cities'. I woke up one morning under indictment for Theft Of Trade Secrets, in love with a KGB agent and under orders to steal the Judy Lynn from a drug dealer. Yea, it was a place that was the best of all possible worlds and at the same time, the biggest incestuous mound of excrement I had ever stepped into..." - Jim Catanich, PC499c - Theft Of Trade Secrets
