Author Info

Jim McAllister is an American writer from Phoenix, AZ. His first piece of work was published in “The Mail” section of The New Yorker Magazine in 2019 when he had one beer too many, and disagreed with an article they published, then sought out attention on his disagreement. He is a graduate of Arizona State University and also holds a certificate in Financial Planning.

Diary of a Rental Car” is his first published book that explores an often overlooked piece of travel, the rental car. In this freshman proclamation, he chose to give a voice to the life of a rental car and the stories, adventures, abuse, and positive life-changing moments that a rental car would see in this role. This book takes the perspective if a rental car had a personality of its own and kept a diary of the people that had rented it, these would be the experiences it would talk about.   

In his spare time, Jim continues to brave the heat of Phoenix, AZ in the summer, and spends his time fishing, traveling as much as the United States as possible, playing with his dog, and taking long naps on his couch.
