More About the Author
His latest novel, Prison of the Soul, chronicles the trials of hard-nose teacher in his last-chance job inside a supermax classroom for a state's worst and most violent criminal delinquents. Raised in an abusive family himself, he tries and fails at using might and muscle to control his feral students, but succeeds when he opens himself to a most unusual treasure trove of learning.
James is a former combat soldier, helicopter pilot, newspaper writer and editor, national award-winning columnist, and magazine editor.
He has published more than a dozen military action-adventure novels, including the six-book series Force Recon. He wrote the Delta Force series under the pen name John Harriman. Prison of the Soul is the result of his reinvention as a writer.

This version of the book is now more user-friendly, so you can still take it in little bites, or in big chunks if you choose.
My favorite topic is probably the 10 Scene Tool, which helped me finish two novels for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Whether you have this one or the earlier incarnation, the material is solid, portable, accessible, and practical, and you can't go wrong either way.
Like almost all craft of writing books it touches things that have been gone over a million times, but does it in a quick enjoyable way.
I highly recommend.
