Rudi James [pen name] was born in the UK and currently lives in Portugal near a small town with historical links to the Knights Templar. An extensive background in Avionics gives Rudi a unique insight into how things work, or how they might work; hence Sci Fi could in some way become Sci Fact. Always a story teller he has now turned his attention to the pen, or rather the keyboard, having finally given up travelling the world.

Where to find Rudi James online
Alex and the Seventh Realm
Long ago in a time dimension, parallel to our own, a battle had raged between two factions that practised the techniques of advanced magic; Warlocks and Sorcerers.
Centuries later cosmic forces focus their attention on young Alex Shrine, because of a rare gene inherited from a distant ancestor; hoping to recruit him to the ranks of those who would oppose the destruction of the cosmos.
Alex and the Realm People [2nd. edition]
A stranger, calling himself Hogarth, claims to come from another dimension and persuades a teenager, Alex, to accompany him to a parallel world.
A bizarre dust like powder transports them to the stranger's home and Alex embarks on a mind blowing adventure.
He discovers his new friends are realm and time travellers and assists them in a battle against an evil renegade.

- How To Draw Fantasy Characters - Your Step-By-Step Guide To Drawing Fantasy Characters
on Oct. 15, 2012
I found this title to be excellent for complete beginners [like myself] who are just starting to experiment with the rudiments of character drawing. The easy step by step instructions to building a fully fledged fantasy character are extremely helpful.
The only drawback [pun intended] is that when one gets into the nuts and bolts, so to speak, the author tends to focus predominantly on the female form. This does not detract in any way to the methods used in building up a good character drawing.
In my opinion a leaning to a more 50/50 feminine/masculine approach would make things even more useful.
I happily give the book 4 stars.
