James Maxey's mother warned him if he read too many comic books, they would warp his mind. She was right. Now an adult who can't stop daydreaming, James is unsuited for decent work and ekes out a pittance writing down demented fantasies about masked women, fiery dragons, and monkeys. Oh god, so many monkeys. 

Readers interested in sampling Maxey's odd ramblings might enjoy his science-fantasy Bitterwood series, the secondary world fantasy of his Dragon Apocalypse novels, his superhero novels Nobody Gets the Girl and Burn Baby Burn, or the steam-punk visions of Bad Wizard. His short fiction has appeared in IGMS, Asimov's, and over a dozen anthologies, with the best of his work appearing in the collection There is No Wheel. In 2015, James was selected as the Piedmont Laureate.

James lives in Hillsborough, North Carolina with his lovely and patient wife Cheryl and too many cats. For more information about James and his writing, visit jamesmaxey.net.
