James was born in England and raised on books. In 2007, he travelled to Australia to study film, intending to stay for a year. Once there, he fell in love, first with the country, then with his future wife, and ended up staying for good.

When he’s not writing (or procrastinating), he works as a ferry deckhand in Brisbane, Queensland, where he lives with his long-suffering wife and their two cats, Molly and Huckleberry.

James is currently working on a new trilogy, tentatively titled “The Dark Kingdom”, an epic fantasy about a blind girl with the power to control the minds of eagles. He plans to release the first book in the series in July 2018.
