Biography of

James Shirk

I live in a quiet part of the Pacific Northwest with my wife, Connie, and our golden retriever, Oliver. During my career in business, I often dreamed of the day when I could devote my time exclusively to writing, and now, I have it. Writing has been a passion of mine for some time. Sitting at the keyboard, looking at a blank screen, and letting my sometimes over-worked imagination cut loose, is nothing short of exhilarating. I’m there; seven days a week--chasing the perfect word, for the perfect sentence, in the perfect paragraph. When that happens, it’s...magic. My writing and reading tastes gravitate toward the genre of sci-fi and horror, although I am equally comfortable with a good mystery or action novel. Sometimes, I even like to read books that expand my mind in areas I didn’t know needed expanding, e.g., Daniel Quinn’s “Ishmael” trilogy My goal in writing is simple: I don’t expect to make a fortune; I don’t expect to have millions of people waiting for my next epic; and, I don’t expect to be recognized by people on the street whom I don’t personally know. What I do expect (or at least want) is to have someone, somewhere, read a story of mine and say: “That was pretty good. I enjoyed it.”
