James took an interest in reading and writing at an early age. In the first grade he began writing and illustrating stories for the amusement of himself and his family. By the time he was 7 he discovered Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park and it was basically all over for him. Science Fiction and Fantasy became staples of his voracious reading appetite with books by Brian Jacques, Ben Bova, and Christopher Rowley competing for his attention.

Today he lives in St. Louis, Missouri where he writes the kinds of stories he's dreamed of, the sort of odd mixtures he knows he'd want to read. When he's not writing he reads, plays video games, or spends time with his wife.
