James Richardson was born in Fort Worth in 1947 and spent most of his life in Texas.
Along the way he raised two daughters, served as a police officer in Irving back when the land between Dallas and Irving was still rolling pastures, had a popular radio show on Wise County’s KBOC radio station as ‘Country Boy Jim’, and made the best tasting donuts on the planet.
It wasn’t until his death in July 2019 that his daughters came across a set of papers, which proved beyond doubt the man could also write an entertaining story. The short stories and poems, written sometime around 1994, provide a unique insight into the great man we simply called “Dad.”
