James David Audlin is an American author living in Panama, after previously living in France.
A retired pastor, college professor, and newspaper opinion page editor, he is best known as the author of "The Circle of Life".
He has written about a dozen novels, several full-length plays, several books of stories, a book of essays, a book of poetry, and a book about his adventures in Panama.
Fluent in several languages, he has translated his novel "Rats Live on no Evil Star" into French ("Palindrome") and Spanish ("Palíndromo").
He also is a professional musician who composes, sings, and plays several instruments, though not usually at the same time.
He is married to a Panamanian lady who doesn't read English and so is blissfully ignorant about his weirdly strange books. However his adult daughter and son, who live in Vermont, USA, are aware, and are wary, when a new book comes out.

You want an epic tale set on an interesting planet. You want to be drawn into the lives of a cast of human and other species. You want careful description of it all for you to envision. You want a meaty, satisfying underlying theme supported by believable science. You want to read this book. Rich threads weave through the story with connections to world literature. Savor. Enjoy.
