About the Author
Stephen Charles James was born in Kampala, Uganda with British parentage. After a 1960’s uprising took place in his homeland, his family fled to Queensland, Australia, settling in the suburbs of the capital city Brisbane. James excelled in English at school, and eventually it became his favorite subject. He penned several short stories, plays, and poems as a teenager. A secure position in the Australian Postal Service saw enough spare time to continue creative writing through his mid-thirties via a local water-ski club magazine, where he became head writer and editor; eventually becoming the president . During that time, he met and married his wife Andrea. Sadly, with no children of their own, his attentions were captured by the children of friends and family. Playing with the young ones and inventing stories for them gave inspiration to create and publish an ongoing series of children’s adventure books enjoyed by 3-8 age bracket. Self-illustrating the picture books was both a challenge and a stimulating accomplishment for James. Throughout his life’s exciting journey, James is proud to share that he has lived in England, Africa, and Australia. He’s also travelled extensively to destinations such as Italy, Gibraltar, New Zealand, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Tahiti, Curacao, and Genoa via Panama and the Suez Canals.
