James Porteous is a seasoned writer and digital librarian.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Breakfast. And coffee. And my digital version of The Guardian newspaper.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Observing life. Much of what I write comes from watching people, events and such. I rarely 'take note' of any of these things but they usually take a spot in the back of my brain, waiting for a chance to resurface.
