James was born in the Detroit area and moved with his family to the east coast of Florida at the age of 10. After spending 28 sweltering years in Florida, he decided to pack up and move his family to a small town in the mountains of northwest Georgia.
During his years in Florida, he became a self-proclaimed "expert" on all things Florida. He rode out three hurricanes and voted in the 2000 election where we learned that everyone in Florida was numerically challenged. He also learned that Florida is "in" the south, but not "of" the south. Reason being that more Yankees live there than Floridians.
Now in Georgia, he spends his time at a much slower pace and trying to do a little writing on the side. (Emphasis on " trying".) He also likes to write about himself in the "third person" every chance he gets.
