Since I was about 12 I've known I wanted to be a writer, but I've taken a damn long time getting around to it. I received a degree in writing from Fitchburg State in Massachusetts. The major didn't require taking a language, so that was a bonus as I am rubbish with foreign languages...just ask the poor little Japanese waitress who thinks I want to eat her head as a sandwich. Anywhooo, after school I worked briefly in journalism, but fell out of love with it really fast. I tried my hand at script writing in Hollywood...well okay, I was living in North Hollywood which is considered as distant as the Sahara if you're one of those Hollywood fancypants blatherskites (yeah, take that!), but I digress.

I write hard-hitting, bare-bones erotica for those who like their toast buttered on one side only - and thickly at that!
I definitely do NOT write for the feint-of-heart, do not pull any punches, and definitely tell it exactly like it is. You'll feel like you're right there.
If you want to read wishy-washy, titillating stories, they abound elsewhere. Mine do not fit that bill at all.
You want hard-core, down-to-earth erotica?

I plan on writing 30+ books, but I need help from you, the readers. Motivation is a tool that I lack. Creativity is a resource where "my cup" runneth over. So, please, if you have anything positive to say, polite criticism to give, or you simply want to say hi, feel free to. And remember, a review can be a detailed essay or a simple "I loved it".
I havent rec'd as much feedback as i would liked BUT the sheer number of total series downloads has been encouraging. A few more positive reviews and i will release the next in the series Century. Thank you to all who have supported me.

James Koumis was born in August 1971, the youngest of six children of a working-class Cypriot family. They lived in East London until he was 13, when the whole family moved to North London.
James’ childhood was harsh and strict, and he had to work for the family business from the age of seven, depriving him of his childhood. He and his siblings received no guidance in life outside the home from his peers or family and he was not able to focus or study effectively at school.
At 18, finding life at home unbearable, James left. At the age of 35 he had a ‘wake-up call’ and went through some challenging times, personally and financially. His loving wife Leigh and their three children stood by him durin ... read more
