James Smith grew up in a small town in Georgia with a love for creative writing and always dreamed of writing a book. He retired after twenty years in the military, getting his BA in Criminal Justice and an MA in Performance Improvement in the process. When he retired in 2018, he revived his dream of being an author. This is his debut novel. His goal was to create not only a great story, but a series that engages the reader, introducing them to characters they can love, hate, and sometimes both. James is married with two daughters, and they currently live in Georgia.
