The Jim French Productions, Inc. Years

Jim French Productions stopped producing and selling March 31, 2017.  Obviously the single episodes and the five part series "You Shouldn't Detour off Route 66" are no longer available from Jim French Productions.

The above is the last picture I took of Jim before his death in December, 2017. I was soon to take off for a month-long trip to Sicily and we had talked about the trip and were both looking forward to my return to share all my adventures with him.  Jim and Princess, how I will always remember him in my heart. 

From Jim French Productions:

Between January 2004 and April 2017 I was lucky enough to work for one of the very few professional audio drama companies in the country. I started out as a bookkeeper and eventually ended up being a staff writer.


I worked predominently on Jim's Harry Nile detective series creating the first ever 5-part mini-serial "You Shouldn't Detour Off Route 66".

The writers' contract with JFP was that the company only bought the one-time broadcast production rights and the script belonged to the author to do with as they pleased. The only restriction was that the author must change the name of any of the character's Jim created such as Harry Nile or Kincaid or Dameron. And, of course, not only the main characters but the supporting characters such as Murphy and Shelly.

This was a very generous legacy that Jim left all his writers and I, for one, am very grateful. 

To that end all my Harry Nile Scripts are now available under the name: A Touch of Silva - The Exploits of Ronnie D'Silva, Private Detective.

There is a page now set up for him.
