Mike James

Biography

Originally from Chicago, I'm a lifelong, die-hard suicidal Cubs fan. Talk about drama! Like other Cub fans, I had the lining of my guts ripped out along the way to the 2016 World Series victory. One of my better decisions was to move to Florida around 2010. I live by myself near Daytona Beach. I've been self-employed since about 1999 and for the last 5 years I've traveled around the country as a professional speaker. I also do executive recruiting and provide occupational assessments. I love writing because I get to stay home! Plus, it's so interesting to think about what twists should come next. I'm fascinated by the current political situation. The corruption, the division, the secret agenda's. It's all like watching a movie - but it's really happening. My next series is a political satire about the future. Then, a book of short stories. Thanks for taking a look. Mike James
