I'm a writer and educator - I've worked in teaching since the mid 90s, and now work for a university helping lecturers get the content right for their online courses (yes, it involves a lot of writing). More than that, I'm a writer, an author of long and short fiction, of television and film scripts, of comic book stories and poetry.
I'm Scottish, but I haven't lived in Scotland much for nearly 20 years. I spent a lot of time overseas - places like Turkey, Australia and a a good long stretch in Hong Kong.
I now live in the New Forest in England with my wife and two kids.

I'm passionate about helping women over 30 transform their lives so they can experience joy, clarity, feel empowered, and see a lot more possibilities. My business was born of my own struggles with feeling overwhelmed and stuck. From learning how to cope, I realized coping wasn't good enough and that what I really needed was a new lifestyle, a wellness lifestyle, to help me reclaim my life. Hence, The Brinkley Center was born. At The Center, I offer my clients a lifestyle approach to help transform their lives.
Professionally I am a licensed psychologist, consultant, and trainer on stress management, mindbody wellness, and cultural competence. I've given trainings in these areas, locally, nationally, and inte ... read more

I write hard-hitting, bare-bones erotica for those who like their toast buttered on one side only - and thickly at that!
I definitely do NOT write for the feint-of-heart, do not pull any punches, and definitely tell it exactly like it is. You'll feel like you're right there.
If you want to read wishy-washy, titillating stories, they abound elsewhere. Mine do not fit that bill at all.
You want hard-core, down-to-earth erotica?
You've come to the write place . . .

I plan on writing 30+ books, but I need help from you, the readers. Motivation is a tool that I lack. Creativity is a resource where "my cup" runneth over. So, please, if you have anything positive to say, polite criticism to give, or you simply want to say hi, feel free to. And remember, a review can be a detailed essay or a simple "I loved it".
I havent rec'd as much feedback as i would liked BUT the sheer number of total series downloads has been encouraging. A few more positive reviews and i will release the next in the series Century. Thank you to all who have supported me.

James Koumis was born in August 1971, the youngest of six children of a working-class Cypriot family. They lived in East London until he was 13, when the whole family moved to North London.
James’ childhood was harsh and strict, and he had to work for the family business from the age of seven, depriving him of his childhood. He and his siblings received no guidance in life outside the home from his peers or family and he was not able to focus or study effectively at school.
At 18, finding life at home unbearable, James left. At the age of 35 he had a ‘wake-up call’ and went through some challenging times, personally and financially. His loving wife Leigh and their three children stood by him durin ... read more

I was born in January of 1992 and I've lived in the Ottawa region of south-eastern Ontario ever since. I've had an interest in reading since I was a child, with much of my time spent nestled in a corner reading C.S. Lewis' "The Chronicles of Narnia", J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" or other works similar to theirs. With a rich supply of characters and fantastic settings to push my imagination off onto its own path, I suppose it's no great wonder that I developed a desire to create works of my own. And, much to my delight, I found that I loved writing as a young adult just as much as I had reading as a child. So, if you are one of those willing to give my work a shot, allow me to thank you.
