Jim Sweet was born in Boston, MA and grew up in Warwick, RI. He has always enjoyed reading and started writing consistently in his mid-40s.
Back To The Front Porch started out as an "advice column to himself". He needed to follow a consistent daily practice to keep his mind, body, and spirit healthy and wrote it down in the pages of his first book. Some of these practices include a mindfulness blog, a gratitude journal, a conscious path to self-compassion, and yoga nidra.
He has lived in Southern Washington County, NY since 2004 and tries to follow his own advice daily.
