Jim Proser

Award-Winning author Jim Proser grew up as the fourth of five sons of nightclub impresario Monte Proser and film actress Jane Ball in New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Jim began his professional writing career at age 15 as a city reporter for the Lambertville (NJ) Beacon newspaper and as a regional photojournalist for the Bucks County Courier Times. He went on as a journalist to write interviews of business leaders for the Investor's Business Daily. He has written screenplays for film and television producers including 20th Century Fox Television, Showtime Networks and numerous independent producers.

His first novel, "I'm Staying with My Boys; The Heroic Life of Sgt. John Basilone, USMC" was published by St. Martin's Press and awarded the United States Marine Corps Commandant's Recommendation in 2011. It was used as source material for the HBO television series, The Pacific, and the subsequent documentary film written and directed by Mr. Proser.

The book and documentary have also served as the source material for speaking engagements to the United States Naval Institute in Washington DC, the University of Northern Idaho Writer's Symposium, Bowdoin College Advanced Literature Studies, the Coeur D'Alene Charter Academy and numerous civic organizations and secondary schools.

His second novel, Mr. Copacabana, the biography of his father, creator of the iconic Copacabana nightclub, has been optioned for production as a television series in 2017 by 11 time Emmy nominated producer Bill D'Elia and is also in development as a stage musical.

Mr. Proser lives in Sarasota, FL and spends his days working on his third novel, Monte and the Assassins, and writing inflammatory political posts for his blog at jimproser.com.
