James Erith was born in Suffolk in the UK. He moved to North Yorkshire where he lived between the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors. This stunningly beautiful part of Northern England inspired him to use it as the location for his fantasy adventure series EDEN CHRONICLES.
THE POWER AND THE FURY is the first instalment of Eden Chronicles. Book two SPIDER WEB POWDER sees the deepening of his epic fantasy adventure. Part three, THE RIDDLE OF BLABISTERBERRY JELLY, will be released in March 2016.

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love to play football and cricket - sports in general - with my kids. Often, I'll take Rollo, our wonderful long haired Dachtshund for a walk to the woods. For a dog with such short legs, he's surprisingly determined. I'm currently building a swimming pond - or organic pool - which is terrifically exciting.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was awful. Everyone died right at the beginning and, as I couldn't remember what the point of it was, I threw it away.
