Biography

I write under a penname because my given name (James Harper) is really common. ZBD has become an artistic release of sorts...as real as I try to be, I always feel like I'm writing as a character rather than myself. I think it has influenced my writing in good and bad ways. I tend to get philosophical when I write and what is more bizarre than the philosophies of a person that doesn't exist?...someone that can't take responsibility for his actions? Either way, I hope you enjoy the books.
