James Alexander

Biography

A freelance writer and a graduate in an IT discipline, I have always had a fascination with new technologies and their impact on society which is often showcased in my writing.

By day I am a cubicle dwelling creature, staring at spreadsheets and lines of code, trying my best not to be swallowed up in the numbers staring back at me. I love using my abilities to solve problems and create solutions but often find myself frustrated at the lack of opportunity to use my creativity.

The only remedy I have found is to periodically break away from a long stretch of keyboard mashing and coffee drinking to jot down a few ideas floating around in my mind. As a result of this, I stepped into writing stories in the evening using the notes I wrote throughout the day. Of course, this is all in between changing diapers and running around the house with a balloon tied to my butt pocket for my daughter to chase. Yes, I'm a dad and an exceptional husband - don't verify this with my wife though.

I enjoy reading stories with characters that I can relate to. I read mostly science fiction and fantasy. Authors that I enjoy have been Stephen King, Terry Goodkind, Terry Brooks, George R. R. Martin, and Dean Koontz.
