Born in in Hartford, CT, James fell in love with the stories told in movies, television and through the books he read as a child and developed a love for storytelling. His passion has always been creating stories with interesting and relatable characters in larger than life circumstances. His philosophy on writing is it’s important for an audience to care what happens to the characters in order to be vested in the story.
James currently resides in Orlando FL., with his two beautiful children. Although he’s been writing all his life, in 2015 he published a book series titled “Land of The Living”, a science fiction novel that was near to his heart followed by the novel “Land of Death and Destiny” and “Land of Shadows and Light.” Most recently he’s completed work on a horror novel “Dark Star” and his newest book is in the mystery/suspense genre. He has also created scripts based on his book series, and will start work on a short film titled “High Five Across Time”, which he will serve as writer and director, that will begin filming in Fall of 2022. His newest creation “The Relationship Curse” has been written for television and tells the story of Adrian, a newly divorced father of two teenagers who’s drawn into the world of dark magic and voodoo by a woman from his past.
James is divorced and has mixed children bringing the life experience of being a single dad in a mixed family to his stories. He has always had a strong belief that the strength of any good story is in how you develop it. You can come up with an original idea, but if it’s not developed properly an audience will not relate to it. His life and writing career, like any other has been filled with ups and downs but the adversity he’s experienced, like the characters he creates in his stories, have enabled him to grow as a writer and a person.
