James lives in Surrey with his wife and newborn son.
He took up writing three years ago. A mechanic by day, much of his work has been written at an oil stained workbench whilst ignoring a queue of broken cars in need of his attention.
James is also a keen musician, regularly gigging as a rhythm & blues pianist.
Right now, he is applying the finishing touches to his YA crossover novel, whilst simultaneously balancing the carburettors on a Ford Capri.
James' debut YA novel, Last Lesson, tackling teen mental illness and toxic masculinity, will be published in spring 2020 by Penguin Random House Children's.
