About James Birk

James Birk is a fairly nice bloke. You'd probably like him if you met him. Alongside writing, James claims to enjoy a number of pursuits that he doesn't actually do. These include things like taekwondo, football and running. They all were genuine hobbies at one point but he really doesn't do them anymore. He sometimes goes to the gym though. Quite often actually.
James is a teacher by profession. He never wanted to be a teacher but now that he is one he doesn't mind it.
James is happily married and lives with his wife in the South East of England.
James is apparently quite comfortable writing about himself in the third person as demonstrated by this mini-biography.


Review by: Ina Disguise on Sep. 22, 2013 :
Neatly captured the mundanity of office life and difference in the attitude towards overweight men to overweight women eg. your friends tell you to take up a sport rather than telling you you should hide because you are socially unacceptable and altogether hideous. Well written and nicely paced. For me, could have done with a tiny bit more introspection at the beginning to really make me care about the person but as a stream of thought development - it worked very well.
