About the Author
James C. Mulaney started life in the middle of the depression in Mena Arkansas, clinging to principles and values that gave family importance and kept the country together. He served in the Army during the Korean Conflict from 1952 until 1955. Home again, he attended college in Overland Park, Kansas, finishing up in Lamar, Colorado, where he and his wife, Esther, settled, while they raised two daughters. He was quite the cowboy in those early days, working farms and ranches in the southeastern Colorado area. Sometime near 1959, he arrived at the Bus Depot in Lamar, where his wife and some friends were gathered for coffee in the evening. Dressed in chaps and side arms, with his hat low and his spurs jingling, he startled the many customers, who weren’t used to cowboys showing up in downtown. He spent the next several years working as a lineman for the electric company, then rescuing people in the 1965 Flood along the Arkansas River. After that he hung up his lineman belt and began working for a local appliance company. Eventually, the entrepreneurial spirit grabbed him and he opened his own appliance company until he retired in 1993. Always an adventurer, his retirement came after he fell out of a tree he was trimming. After years of storytelling, he decided to try his hand at writing. A collection of ideas became a plot and Out of the Forest was the working title for this adventure. He continues to write while working in the Hospitality Industry, enjoying the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people and pursuing his interest in photography.
