About James Strauss

I was born into a Coast Guard family during WWII. Have lived in four countries and twenty-seven states, in places from South Manitou Island, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, to Honolulu, Hawaii. I experienced a variety of positions in many careers, from being a Marine Corps Officer wounded in Vietnam, life insurance agent, physician’s assistant, and a college professor in anthropology.
As a CIA team leader in the field I traveled to 122 countries, where he remains welcome in most of them to this day. I currently live in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and continuing to build from a newspaper publishing foundation called the Geneva Shore Report. This weekly is also published online at TheGenevaShoreReport.Com.
I write about the human condition. The interaction that occurs throughout social systems, among elemental forces of leadership, religion and science. I write about the individual’s attempted integration into such social systems and attempt to define honor, integrity and duty, while I develop my stories.
My novels and short stories focus on self-determination and self-discovery. They are about arrival. The arrival and satisfaction of a blissful state from which one can intelligently reflect and then positively direct one’s life.
The Meaning of Life is all around us and ever changing, depending upon the perspective of others. I write about the meaning of self, and self-application to the meaning of life.
You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google+
