About James Walter White

James White learned the magic of story-telling at an early age. Made-up stories told around a camp fire or while enduring long car trips remain cherished childhood memories which he retold to his children. The stories and their many variations continue to influence his writing. Later in life, he inherited his family's trove of letters, covering everything from world events to daily life since the 1920's, and he has put the letters to work; adding amusing and sometimes poignant depth to his stories and their characters.


After thirty years writing for the wrong reasons, James said good bye to a technical writing career in Silicon Valley and started writing for himself. He discovered he had a lot to write about; a Master's in American History, a Viet Nam veteran, a high school teacher, technical writer, librarian, laborer, sailor, proud father and devoted husband.


James and his poet wife, Becky, make their home in the San Francisco Bay Area, where they've lived, off and on, since since the 1970s. He is currently at work on a prequel to Borders In Paradise. Previous publications include ‘Unified Field,’ Chronoscope Magazine, ‘Chassy,’ The Wapshott Press in their journal, Storylandia, Vol. 24, February, 2018, and ‘Vistula,’ scheduled for publication in The Wapshott Press’ Storylandia, Vol. 27, Summer, 2018. James is currently at work on a prequel to Borders In Paradise. His articles have been published in various journals and anthologies.
