Location: Exeter, NH

Specialties: 
Creative Nonfiction and memoir is my favorite area of writing and where I’ve won some awards, garnered attention from publishers for the authors I work with, and had some projects turned into screenplays. One is being marketed by the screenwriter in LA and the other has a small production company behind it.

James also writes on a range of business related topics that include business theory, technology and related methodologies, sales and marketing, continual improvement, etc.

James has also written for the life sciences at a high level (The MIT Press). As a cancer survivor, this is an area of particular interest.
