Meet the Editor and Song Writer

James B. Waring

Jimmy is from a family of talented writers, as both parents wrote columns for news papers and his great grand father was the honorary Poet Laureate of South Carolina.  He claims this is where his natural ability to rhyme originated.

He writes, composes, plays and sings his own music.  He has written many songs and jingles.  One of Jimmy’s passions is writing and singing Christian music with the St. Paul’s Worship Team at his local church.

He is a graduate of Charleston Southern University with a degree in Marketing and English.

Married to Lisa Waring, he still resides in Summerville, SC where he was born and raised.  They have two grown children, two Springer Spaniels and one equally spoiled cat.
