5 Questions with . . . James
- When did you first realize you were interested in becoming an author? What drives you to write?
I’ve always wanted to create, but I guess I first wanted to be a writer in high school after starting to read Stephen King. I had always loved science fiction, but I really got into SF literature in high school and knew I had to write this stuff.
- How would you describe your style or genre of writing to a potential fan?
I write Science fiction and pulp adventure.
- What are you currently working on? What are you working on next?
I’m working on several things at once. I’m writing a Lovecraft in space story for hopeful inclusion in an anthology. My plan is to turn it into a novel trilogy. After that, I have two more Shadow Council Archives novellas to write for Falstaff Books, and then it’s back to my space marines vs. alien kaiju novel.
- What existing book do you wish you had written and why?
Ready Player One -it is such a fun book with a concept I wish I had thought of.
- What is one piece of advice you would give to a budding writer?
Don’t give up. The surest way to fail is to stop trying.
