He spent twenty years as a counselor in the Indiana Department of Corrections and recently retired from the San Francisco Probation Department, where he was assigned to a domestic violence and stalking unit. The criminal element figures strongly in his writing.
James' short stories have appeared in multiple journals, including Eclipse, The Literary Review, and Crack the Spine. Three of his stories received Pushcart nominations.
James' novels,The Siege, Call Me Pomeroy, and A Second Less Capable Head: And Other Rogue Tales are available on Amazon.
