James Hurst was born in 1971, and has so far managed to lead a somewhat non boring life. Having seen a little of the world before he reached the age of ten, he decided to make the UK his home, because "it's far more interesting than most people realise...".
He remembers seeing Star Wars the first time round, and grew up in age when it was cool to wear baseball caps the wrong way round (something he still does to this day). He sites reading as one of the few enjoyable things a person can do on there own.
Having tried most jobs, he found that it was more fun to write, and now devotes his time to that.
