JAMES HARPER is the creator of the Evan Buckley crime thrillers. Raised on a diet of Philip Marlowe and Travis McGee, it’s easy to see how they turned out the way they did. Combining murder, mystery, and mayhem with a healthy dose of humor thrown in, the novels feature wise-cracking, street-smart private-eye Evan Buckley, and include Bad To The Bones, Kentucky Vice, Sins Of The Father, No Rest For The Wicked, Resurrection Blues, Hunting Dixie and Fallen Angel.

James has been a lecturer, a web designer and an accountant (where his natural talent for making stuff up wasn’t always appreciated), so he decided to change tack and write fiction to put it to better use. In his spare time James does what he’s told (if he knows what’s good for him) and likes touring Europe on his motorbike.

He currently lives in a 400 year old cottage in the woods with his wife and their cat, a big bad hunter called Armstrong, who features in some of James’ novels. That’s not James in the picture above (nor is it his wife, more’s the pity).

James loves hearing from readers, so please feel free to contact him.
