I've been told I'm a natural born story teller. I've been doing it, TELLING stories that is, since I was a kid. It's only in these latter years that I've WRITTEN stories, mostly novels plus a weekly newspaper column that puts the bread on the table.
History was always my thing; perhaps it's the low cut dress sweeping the floor, but I was always the heroine.

Stories that intrigue me the most are about real people in extraordinary circumstances. How would you feel if you watched the only man you ever loved murdered before your eyes? That’s what I asked of Mia. How would any one of us act, or react? That’s what I wanted to explore in Epiphany. I hope you take the journey with me.
When I’m not taking those trips, I’m writing letters to insurance companies demanding they pay for services rendered. When I went to nursing school twenty-four years ago I never thought I would spend my time writing. If you read enough of my stories you’ll find a crazy doctor or two. Enjoy!

About the Author:
The author, W. D. James, grew up in the backyard slag piles made famous by Harry Chapin but missed out on the bananas by a couple of years, a fact that haunts him to this day.
James was educated in public schools and attended Mansfield University but escaped, mere credits short of alumni status, thereby avoiding daily requests for donations, a move that saved hundreds of otherwise-condemned trees from the paper mill.
While at Mansfield, James edited the school newspaper and was a voice of mellow relaxation on the campus radio station. Listeners, both of them, said he was “a DJ, I think. Right?”

At an old wooden desk in a chilly sports hall, a teenage Chris Hollis first realised he wanted to write. The exam paper asked for a short scene about a person being chased. Chris ran over the word count.
Then he ran out of paper. Then he wrote on the back...
Many (enough) years later, he has developed a flavour for fast-paced fiction, and a sense of paranoia that has invited comparison to the likes of James Herbert, Kafka, and his main source of inspiration, H. G. Wells.
Other favourites include John Wyndham and the modern horror of Graham Masterton. Chris is presently working on three projects, all of which are thrillers. His debut novel, Subculture, is available now in electronic format.
