James A. West
Author page of epic fantasy writer James A. West! If you like leaner, fast-paced fantasy, you've come to the right place.
When James was thirteen years old he read The Talisman, by Stephen King and Peter Straub, and a seed of an idea was planted that someday he, too, would create different worlds and realities.
After a stint in the US Army, a year as a long-haul truck driver, and a couple as a log home builder, he enrolled at the University of Montana. There, he majored in Psychology and, by chance, took a creative writing course that allowed him to revisit that old seed of an idea of creating worlds. Words started to flow, and worlds were born.
After college, he started a small woodworking business with the express purpose of using it to fund his writing journey.
James lives in Montana with his wife and his bodyguard, a Mini-Schnauzer named Jonesy.
