Jim has been a writer since grade school. Writing and sports have been his passion and today he is the sports editor of two, Gold Country Media publications in the Sacramento area of Northern California.
He began script writing while in the third grade and produced a class play on ghosts and gold. From that point on, his interests have also included filmmaking and video production.
Jim wrote and directed “A Devilish Tale,” judged best film of the year by the Northern California Amateur Filmmaker Association in 1980. He also wrote a parody play of “Star Trek” that the organizers requested for a “Star Trek” convention held in Sacramento.
He began working with his brother Tim of Timothy Linsdau Productions and has helped write and direct productions on gold prospecting, a segment of Emmett Harder’s book “These Canyons are Full of Ghosts” and a philosophy/theology study on the decision to suspend life support titled “Ice Cream for Tom.”
Jim lives in Northern California with his wife, daughter, three dogs and a cat. He also serves as consulting editor of The Wheatland Citizen newspaper, a publication recently acquired by his wife, Mindy.
