Jim Infantino grew up in the Manhattan of the 1970s and 80s. He studied Philosophy and became a busker on the streets of Cambridge and Boston.

Feature - Monday, January 13





In 2012, shortly after the birth of his first child, Jim got the inspiration for a story too large to fit into song and began writing his first speculative fiction novel: The Wakeful Wanderer’s Guide to New New England & Beyond, which he then self-published. The novel has turned into a series under the name The Wakeful Wanderer’s Guide and Jim is now working on book 2 which is due to be published next fall.


When not writing songs or novels or playing music, Jim runs a web design company called Slabmedia, creates code, teaches meditation, and sometimes even gets a little rest.
