James Crawford's Blog

I’m a writer, artist, fountain pen user/collector, and subversive suburbanite who lives in the metro Washington, DC area. Many of my books, such as the Blood Soaked Trilogy and Bleeding the Little Lambs are set in Northern Virginia.

I confess that I hate writing bios. That’s why I borrowed Ghoulette from my Instagram feed to introduce me.

Back in the mists of 9th grade, I wrote a short story. It was a suspenseful little thing, and it creeped out my entire class, teacher included. That was probably when the writing muse first nibbled on my earlobe.

I went to Washington College and followed a different muse: fine art. From there, like a cheap date, I followed many muses into various jobs and careers. When 2010 rolled along, the writing muse struck back.

The next thing I knew, I was in denial that I was writing a novel. That was the first draft of Blood Soaked and Contagious.

Here, some years later, there are three books in that series, and I have other projects underway.

I think the writing muse has teeth, just like the demon of stationery and pen acquisition. Damn, those are some big canines!
