James R. Vance
Bio: James commenced writing ten years ago by starting two fiction novels, but laid them to one side due to the pressures of full-time employment. In 2002 he suffered two heart attacks within three days. Whilst recovering in hospital, he compiled a diary of the experience on his laptop which fascinated both family and friends, re-generating his interest in writing. The illness forced him into retirement and he ?fled? to the tranquillity of South West France where he has resurrected and adapted some of the original material and re-commenced writing as a therapy towards recovery.
The idea for his first book,The Courier, stemmed from one of the original unfinished manuscripts, which in turn will hopefully become the prequel to The Courier with the two central characters portrayed in their earlier years together.
