Bio

James writes stories which are a little bizarre.

He enjoys taking readers down strange and seldom trodden paths.  Often dark, and always with a twist or two along the way.  Comedy, thriller, horror and weird fairy tales.  Stories to make you laugh.  Stories to make you cry.  Stories to make you leave the bedroom light on.  But most importantly, stories you will want to share with your friends.  But they might not thank you for it.

James’ stories would sit on the shelf somewhere between horror and dark comedy.  There are also elements of fantasy, a generous dollop of thriller, and a toe firmly planted in the pool of sci-fi.  Not that James writes all genres, but rather he writes stories which often mix two or three genres together.  Forced to hide under the bed, but laughing whilst you’re there.

He is a storyteller with twenty years’ experience in flash fiction, short stories, longer stories and screenplays.  He rarely suffers from writer’s block and considers himself fortunate to be the victim of writer’s overwhelm.  The ideas keep on coming.  Where they come from is a mystery.  A mystery best left unsolved.

He lives in England, with his wife and two daughters.  And a bunch of pets he insisted his girls could NOT have.
