Robert James

Biography

Dr. Robert's life story reads very much like some of his novels. A rock 'n roll run-a-way at thirteen, he has travelled the world extensively in many professions. Blessed with many talents, Dr. Robert spent just over two decades as a performer in the music industry, before becoming an entrepreneur and creator of both audio and video productions. He holds a Bachelors in A/V and a Masters in Science Business Administration.

After a major heart attack in 1998, Dr. Robert ceased his business activities, began his current career as a novelist, and also began his Doctorate in Philosophy, which he graduated in 2005 at sixty years of age. Additionally, he holds a 16 year US patent for an 'improved computer game controller', which is soon to be launched. Having started out writing a post-apocalyptic situation comedy series for television, he is now well past his millionth word of fiction.

    This is great fantasy. The environment that this book is set in has many, many layers. So much so that the author could continue to write sequels until he had outdone the prolific JK Rowling's 'Harry Potter' series. The hero is a dead wizard (male, of course), that chanced upon a lovely female elf warrior's still-alive body, that had had its soul 'eaten' by a soul eating monster. With the help of his lovely assistant, he begins the process of attaching to and getting used to this female body, simultaneously solving the mystery of the soul eating monster - before it gets his soul and the souls of those he cares for. I really like it when authors provide reasonable, believable explanations for the workings of fantasy. The author pull this off nicely, providing just enough detail to allow the reader accept things, and then move along with the action. There's even a bonus short story at the end of the book for those who, line me, want to enjoy some more of that world. My only complaint is that I have discovered this author too early. I would rather have discovered him later - when all of these sequels had been written!
