Writer's Bio

James Wieland grew up on both the East and West coasts spending most of his formative years in music performance groups traveling between the U.S., Canada, and Europe. He took many odd jobs all the while searching for new stories.

Wieland completed a B.S. 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, Getting Out: Success After Incarceration to help people with criminal convictions reform and develop more rewarding lives.

Wieland currently employs his skills as a freelance writer on Fiverr with close to a thousand 5-star reviews for website content, product descriptions, and blog/article writing ranging from technology to international relations.

He currently is working on a slew of new books in the genres of anthology, fantasy, urban science fiction, thriller, and children’s reading.

Wieland lives in Waldoboro, Maine with his loving wife and two children where he manages his private companies 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.

The risk of an original idea being exposed to the world, only to be ridiculed later, is far more dangerous than the prospect of literary success to most who choose the author's pathway. That is why we all have thicker skin.
