About James Field

I was born in Essex, England, in 1951.

My early days of work as an engineer led me to Norway where I met my future wife Kari. She moved to England where we married and raised our two daughters. We moved back to Norway in 1985.

My wife and I now live far in the north, well within the Arctic Circle, in the land of the midnight sun. Life here is slow and comfortable, blessed by unspoilt nature and its magnificent moods.

Being creative in the written form gives me vast pleasure. I hope, dear reader, you will take a break from your world and lose yourself in one of mine.

Review by: James Jenkins on June 24, 2017 :

Characters have distinct personalities and develop well.

Fast transition from mundane, I had to read the ending twice.

Review by: Michael on Jan. 14, 2015 :
Don’t be fooled by the innocent premise. What starts out as a seaside family holiday in an old hotel turns into a rather scary tale with an almost poetic finish. Not recommended for people who are afraid of riding in elevators! Especially old elevators in a state of disrepair! For everyone else, this is a thoroughly enjoyable short story with a tasty twist.

Review by: Wilde Blue Sky on Feb. 16, 2013 :
A grandfather takes his family (including ten-year old grandson) to a run-down hotel, where he stayed as a boy. Everything in the hotel is old and faulty. The grandfather and grandson work together to try and fix things. But will the family survive the ropey old elevator?

This story is enjoyable and has a satisfying twist at the end. If you’ve ever stayed in an old hotel you’ll recognise many of the scenes of faulty appliances / dodgy lifts / etc.
