James R. Tramontana


I'm James R. Tramontana. Most people call me Jim. Some people call me Funny Pants. I'm not picky. I'm a writer, a rocker, a podcaster, a nerd and a nice guy. This website is my "author site," where some of the cool stuff I've made can be found and fondled.

Here's how you pronounce my last name:

It's like riding a TRAM in MONTANA.

You smoosh those two words together and your get Tramontana.

But my family rushes our pronunciation and sometimes the "o" sound more like an "eh" sound. Like, "Tram-EN-tana."

Just remember it's like riding a TRAM in MONTANA and you gotta smoosh that "M" between the too.

Make sense?

Here are a few things I'm known for:
