Rudi James [pen name] was born in the UK and currently lives in Portugal near a small town with historical links to the Knights Templar. An extensive background in Avionics gives Rudi a unique insight into how things work, or how they might work; hence Sci Fi could in some way become Sci Fact. Always a story teller he has now turned his attention to the pen, or rather the keyboard, having finally given up travelling the world. [Latterly West Africa, as part of a team rebuilding helicopters]. Contact website etc. will be posted in due course as will other titles.
The debut title, Alex and the Realm People, shown here has the first chapter of the sequel [Alex and the Seventh Realm] included.
I am also feverishly penning the third book in the series, ALEX and the SAMURAI KING, which I hope to have ready for pre-order soon.

- How To Draw Fantasy Characters - Your Step-By-Step Guide To Drawing Fantasy Characters
on Oct. 15, 2012
I found this title to be excellent for complete beginners [like myself] who are just starting to experiment with the rudiments of character drawing. The easy step by step instructions to building a fully fledged fantasy character are extremely helpful.
The only drawback [pun intended] is that when one gets into the nuts and bolts, so to speak, the author tends to focus predominantly on the female form. This does not detract in any way to the methods used in building up a good character drawing.
In my opinion a leaning to a more 50/50 feminine/masculine approach would make things even more useful.
I happily give the book 4 stars.
