He later turned his talent to journalism, interviewing luminaries such
as Steps and Atomic Kitten before writing a weekly serial in a Brighton
newspaper.

Until recently, James worked as a teacher, specialising in PSHCE and
behaviour. He is most proud of his work surrounding bullying and family
diversity. His first non-fiction book, Being a Boy (Red Lemon) tackled puberty, sex and relationships in a frank and funny fashion. A follow up for young LGBT people, This Book is Gay, will follow in 2014.

James writes full time and lives in South London. In his spare time, he still loves Doctor Who
and is a keen follower of horror films and connoisseur of pop music. In
2014, James became a School Role Model for the charity Stonewall.
