James D.R. Smith


Growing up in the northern reaches of New Hampshire, I gained a deep appreciation for nature and our own, individual, tiny roles within it.​

I started writing when I was quite young -- alternate or extended endings to games like Final Fantasy, if I remember properly, and always maintained a deep fascination for the realms of fantasy. I dreamed of journeying out into the world, carving my own way -- I majored in writing at Plymouth State University and eventually I got the opportunity to study in Japan, and my experiences there deeply affect my writing.

Upon graduation, I deepened my love affair with Asia by choosing to teach English in South Korea. I've been here off and on for many years, expanding my experience with the hopes it makes me a better writer.

Years later, with support and encouragement from friends and family, I finished the first three cantos of the F-Infinity Saga and decided, at last, to share my unique perspective ensconced therein with the rest of the world. Please enjoy, and look forward to my offerings in the future as well!
