Jim O'Rear has been involved in the entertainment industry for over twenty five years, beginning his career on tour as The Youngest Professional Magician with David Copperfield, Harry Blackstone Jr., and The Great Tomsoni and opening for acts like Cheap Trick and John Anderson.

With his “magical” background and having been trained in New York at The American Academy Of Dramatic Arts, it was only natural that Jim move into the realm of film, television, and theatre where he has worked steadily as an actor, stuntman, and special make-up effects artist.


Wanting to get some of his own ideas onto the screen, Jim successfully moved into the area of screenwriting. 
Although competition is tough, he has written and sold a number of horror-related screenplays
Jim has been recognized in Fangoria Magazine, Alternative Cinema, Fright Times, and Femme Fatale Magazine.  
In addition, Jim has written a paranormal book about real hauntings in Tennessee for Schiffer Publishing titled TENNESSEE GHOSTS and has recently released his follow-up titled HOLLYWOOD’S PARANORMAL FILMS.
