James Beston

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom


Home page:

With a background in design, film-making and animation, the desire to write only found a footing at the age of 21. A brief assay of professional drinking put everything on hold for the next ten years whilst never quite dousing that original spark.

A strong desire to see that the digital age doesn’t mean the end of hand written work and the traditions that tie in with that, James still writes in little books with a fountain pen – writing everything in long hand before typing it back out on the keyboard.

Married, with the most beautiful baby (I know, everyone says that, but in this case it is a fact), James divides his time between work as a designer, writing and a sickeningly idyllic life in the countryside.

He is currently working on his first novel with a second just itching to join in the fun.
