About James

Writer, Poet and Pancake Provocateur, I grew up in the gritty east suburbs of Cleveland, where the sometimes dark images shaped my writing. I was a published poet by the age of 18, entering the New Voices in American Poetry, and then went on to study Journalism at The Ohio State University.

My spec for Law & Order: SVU garnered interest at NBC, giving me greater insights to writing for television. I followed up by studying under prominent screenwriting gurus, Robert McKee and Hal Croasmun. Since then I've penned specs that led to assignment work with a few production companies in Los Angeles.

In 2015 I was named one of Screenwriting U's Most Recommended Screenwriter's.

Two of my pilots, MICHAEL SERMON and SIZE SEVEN RED were both optioned by a Toronto based production company.

My heart is in writing thrillers, suspense and powerful television drama with compelling characters that erupt from the page.

I have several projects in various stages of production:

MICHAEL SERMON (optioned)
A betrayed drug dealer, burned alive and left for dead, gets a chance to settle the score when a DEA agent gives him a new face and sends him back to the streets to bring down a drug lord.

FURIOUS ANGELS
After killing a pedophile and spending three years in a mental hospital, a former cop joins a unique team of private investigators who themselves were all once abused.

BLACK IN BLUE
ADA Anna Bryson-Mills life threatens to unravel when a racially charged shooting puts her on a collision course against her own father, the Chief of Police.

Currently collaborating on the TV pilot THE BEGOTTEN - FBI procedural with a supernatural twist.

And yes, I truly love pancakes.
