Russell R. James was raised on Long Island, New York and spent too much time watching Chiller, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, and Dark Shadows, despite his parents’ warnings. Bookshelves full of Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe didn’t make things better. He graduated from Cornell University and the University of Central Florida.
After a tour flying helicopters with the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division, he became a technical writer by day and spins twisted tales by night. He writes speculative fiction and historical fiction, but horror is his primary genre.
His wife reads what he writes, rolls her eyes, and says “There is something seriously wrong with you.”
He has published the paranormal thriller Dark Inspiration in 2011 and will publish Sacrifice in 2012 with Samhain. His short stories appeared in Tales of Old, Encounters and Dark Gothic Resurrected magazines, and with Wicked East Press. He is a founding member of the Minnows Literary Group.
He and his wife share their home in sunny Florida with two cats.
