Jim Moorman is not only a born storyteller, he knows how much the human heart and laughter need each other. JAMAICAN FLOWERS is hilarious and poignant and more fun than a barrel of stoned monkeys. Keep ’em coming, Jim.
–Bruce McAllister, author of the award-winning thriller DREAM BABY
“Much like movies, just because a novel is about weed doesn’t mean cannabis users will like it. It has to have humor, drama and lessons about life that readers didn’t know they knew until they see them in print. ‘Jamaican Flowers’ has all that and a great ending! SPOILER ALERT: It’s mind-bending!”

Sonny Flowers is pure, charming genius when it comes to biochemistry and genetics-specifically, marijuana and its potential to make the world a more joyful place-but he still has a lot to learn about fatherhood, guilt, women, happiness and himself, and very little time to learn it in. Sonny has already lost one daughter and will lose the other unless he can win her back-and do it before he literally loses his mind.
A crooked general, self-proclaimed Rastafarian Deity, tongueless henchman, and the ghosts of his past, work to smother his good intentions. Forced back to Jamaica, Sonny must not only decide who in this crazy story he’s living he can trust, but also what is real and what decidedly is not.
Cleveland, OH native, Jim Moorman has shocked friends, family, and acquaintances by actually stringing together a few coherent sentences. Those sentences, paragraphs, and pages work to form Jamaican Flowers, Jim’s debut novel.
Jamaican Flowers is a testament to Jim’s love of all things tropical and light-hearted. A former member of the U.S. Navy, he served as part of the Presidential Ceremonial Guard in Washington D.C. and spent two years abroad in South Korea. After returning to the states, he pursued a career in sales and marketing in the technology sector, writing and scribbling in the evenings and weekends.
He holds no fancy degrees and remains obstinately determined to master the craft of writing novels, even in spite of suffering from ADHD. His sarcasm knows no bounds and he maintains that he writes to inspire and entertain his willing readers. In his spare time, Jim enjoys whistling, laughing, and just taking it easy. If you can believe it, he’s a father and claims it to be the best job he’s ever had.
