About Wilson James

Wilson James was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and currently lives on the coast in northern California. He has worked in, on, and around the water, and loves to travel. He claims to be a sailor in addition to identifying himself as an author of adult and young adult fiction.

The stories of Wilson James mostly target Young Adults, and describe adventures about family, loyalty, honor, tenacity and courage with various backdrops including sailing, aquatics, downhill skiing, international competition, and success at young ages, set in Europe and North America.

As Wilson says, his books are about empowering youth. “If my stories help young people, by giving examples of kids persevering in difficult situations, then I will be very satisfied. If my stories help young people overcome their own challenges, and perhaps find some inspiration, then I will be happy. If my stories help young people find the tenacity and courage to succeed in their own lives, then I will be very pleased. If my stories help achieve some better understanding among friends and families, then I will consider myself fulfilled.”

Wilson describes the ultimate reward for writing. “If even one young person finds some example in one of my books that he or she can use in their own life, then I will consider that every moment I spent writing those books was the best possible way to spend that time.”

His YA fiction book A FAMILY LEGACY: THE WATSON WORKS made it into the second round of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. Another of his titles, PLAYING THE BASEBALL CARD, has been reviewed as a "Great Book" and "Very Inspiring" and "In my 53 years of living this may be one of the most emotional books I personally have read", and for more than a year maintained an overall sales rank well into the top 1% at Barnes and Noble as the top fiction 'Baseball' book.

He has a number of titles available in print and as multi-format eBooks at Smashwords and other major eBook retailers. One of his books, SONS and BROTHERS in SEATTLE, made it to the top of the Best Sellers list for Adult Drama fiction. He is also proud to say that two of his titles have made it to the top of the YA Best Seller lists at Smashwords. One of those titles, ROBERT's RIDE, made it to #1 only 6 weeks after being published. The other top title, SONS and BROTHERS in SEATTLE, sat in the #1 spot for two weeks before being pushed back into the number two spot by ROBERT’S RIDE.
