Hi, I'm James. I'm an author. I live and work in North Devon, England. 

I enjoy juxtaposing light and darkness, predominantly with humans, but also with the landscapes where their stories are told. 

Key recurring elements in my stories are nature, weather, landscape, environment and the human population as an accumulative negative - I do however highlight the potential wonder and beauty of the individual human being. I'd like to think there is some hope.
