Join the author as he finds the humour in situations that would make the Dalai Lama scream out in anger. You'll never see the world the same once you've seen it through Dwayne's eyes. More

About Dwayne R. James

Writer and watercolour artist Dwayne James lives in Peterborough, Ontario where he writes and paints as often as he can, that is when he's not spending time with his young daughter, toddler twin boys, and wife Sarah.

Dwayne studied archaeology in University, and as a result learned how to write creatively. "The most important skill I learned in University," he says, "was the ability to pretentiously write about myself in the third person."

With no formal art training, Dwayne has always preferred the self-guided, experimental approach. In fact, he taught himself how to illustrate archaeological artifacts while completing his Master's degree at Trent University. Said his thesis supervisor at the time: "There might not be much in the way of coherent theoretical content in Dwayne's thesis, but damn, it looks pretty!"

After spending close to a decade as a technical communicator at IBM, Dwayne opted to look at their Jan 2009 decision to downsize him as an opportunity to become a stay-at-home Dad for his young twins, and pursue his painting and creative writing whenever they allow him to do so. It is a decision that continues to make him giggle with wild abandon to this very day.

You will love it. I can vouch for that. I have just finished reading the Gingers and Wry book. Thanks for the laughs and also for helping me put child rearing into perspective. I am going to hug my boys tightly and embrace this time I have with them.
When is your next book coming out?
