C.W. James is the pen name of an author who lives in rural Northern Nevada with two rescue cats. He enjoys hiking and movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood, especially ‘B’ movies and the serials from Republic Pictures.

Under his real name, he has published four middle to upper-grade nonfiction books, as well as approximately two dozen magazine articles on topics such as movies and computer tutorials. He is a full member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

“C.W. James” is a combination of his middle name and his parents’ middle names. He hates having his picture taken, so the portrait on the left  is an Artificial Intelligence creation of somebody who doesn’t actually exist.

Oh, and C.W. James is no relation to the Australian jeweler of the same name. Nor the author of Finding Water.
