Bailey James


Bailey James, a fifth- generation Floridian, was born in Tampa, Florida, into a family of natural storytellers. He has lived throughout the state his entire life, from the northeast coast to Islamorada in the Florida Keys.
After graduating from Wake Forest University, he completed medical school and residency at the University of Florida, before beginning a private practice in orthopedic surgery. His experiences in medicine over more than thirty years have provided him with a deep catalogue of characters and situations he mines for his writing.
He lives with his wife on Amelia Island. While continuing to practice orthopedic surgery, he spends most of his time writing the type of action and techno thrillers he's always enjoyed reading.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
The same types of books I write. Those and non-fiction. I've tried romance and sic-fi, but I rarely get past the first few chapters.

I look for smart dialogue and good flow in a narrative, and I demand technical accuracy. If you have those elements, and believable characters, it's hard to put a book down.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Interesting question. I use an iPad which also lets me read Kindle books. I'm a confirmed Apple devotee and now with the new OS, I can read the same book on my iPhone, iPad, and computers.

I still tend toward paperback for thrillers, and e-books for books I use in research, but for recreational reading it's about 50/50 now. Most of it is driven by convenience and impulse purchasing.
