About James

I have been a professional writer since I was 17. I love language, so when I was an undergraduate, I spent a year in France honing my French because I wanted to be able to think in a different language. My first book in English reflected the sound and cadence of French. My accent is still excellent, and I can almost pass for native French.

I have a concise style of writing and my philosophy is: keep it simple, simple is best. I am very patient, I know my subject matter, be it English or French, and I can convey the complexities of language to you in a straightforward manner. I also have an excellent sense of humor :-)

I taught ESL for two years, first at a community center and then at the community college level. I was awarded an outstanding teacher award based on the test results of my students.

I minored in French at UCLA, taking such arcane classes as "Medieval French Literature." At the University of Bordeaux, I followed a graduate curriculum entirely in French, including lectures, oral exams, and tests.

If you need help with English or language, I am a patient and creative teacher. I would be happy to discuss your needs and my approach with you at any time.
