About the Author
James Wieland was born in Chico, CA, in the United States. He grew up on both the East and West coasts spending most of his formative years in school music performing groups traveling between the U.S., Canada, and Europe. He took many odd jobs from theme park guide to delivery driver, to prep cook, all the while searching for new stories. He completed an education in Business Marketing from Grand Canyon University as well as certifications in IT and Front-End Development from Google and the University of Michigan.
In 2016 James published his first collection of poetry, I Know Where Monkeys Sleep followed by From Thorns in 2018. That same year he published his second edition of the transformative guide, Getting Out: Success After Incarceration to help people with criminal convictions reform and develop more rewarding lives.
He will soon be announcing a slew of new books in 2021 in the genres of anthology, fantasy, urban science fiction, thriller, and children’s books.
James lives in Queen Creek, Arizona with his loving wife and two children where he manages his private web design company and freelance writing clients. You usually will find him reading, in a dojo, at a movie, or sequestered in a local hideaway with pen and paper.
