Jim Ed Hardaway loves to write, reminisce, and make people smile. The result is That Dang Red-Headed Preacher's Kid!—Episodes from My Whimsical Childhood, a funny, inspiring, and reflective memoir with a small side of irreverence! He is a daydreamer, creativity junkie, scribbler, taco enthusiast, and advocate for recess. Jim Ed is a strong believer in the power of art and imagination and is always looking for the next creative idea and epic adventure. He and his wife live in the Texas hill country.

This self-described completist gets a kick out of persevering bicycle history by building and restoring 80s BMX bikes—under the banner "Gym Ed's Bike Shop." He also enjoys picking, collecting, traveling, creative design, and listening to his growing vinyl record and cassette collection from the 70s and 80s.
