About me

Gender MALE
Location Houston, Texas, United States
Introduction Jim Bernhard holds an M.A. in English literature from England's University of Birmingham, where he was a Marshall Scholar and flâneur, and a B.A. in history from Rice University in Houston, where he was an inadvertent member of Phi Beta Kappa. He has pursued (though never actually caught) innumerable careers including those of author, playwright, lyricist, actor, newspaperman, college professor, theatrical producer, concert impresario, TV host, and cruciverbalist. He is purportedly the author of the forthcoming YOU'RE ON! THE THEATRE QUIZ BOOK, which will be available in the fall of 2017. He also claims to have written FINAL CHAPTERS: HOW FAMOUS AUTHORS DIED; PUNS, PUZZLES, AND WORD PLAY; PORCUPINE, PICAYUNE & POST: STARS IN YOUR EYES; and with his wife, Virginia, LIFE IS NOT A DRESS REHEARSAL (an Amazon ebook)--all of which have been overlooked for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. His blog about words is at WordsGoingWild.blogspot.com and another about how famous authors died at DeadAuthorsSociety.blogspot.com. Bernhard and his wife, professor emerita of history at the University of St. Thomas, live haphazardly in Houston.
