J. S. James will be signing books at booth 64 at the Portland Book Festival on November 9th. J. S. James lives near Portland, Oregon with his family, including their “Velcro” Vizsla and furry red exercise machine, Maggie. He completed a popular fiction writing program in Washington but grew up fishing and hunting in Oregon. River Run won first place in the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association’s mystery/thriller contest, and was runner-up and “highly commended” in the Crime Writer’s Association’s Debut Dagger contest. This is J. S. James’s first novel. Currently, he’s hard at work on more novels in the genre.
Set on the Willamette River, J. S James’s River Run features a promotion-hungry Oregon sheriff’s deputy who finds herself in the middle of a hunters-become-the-hunted game where a serial killer takes hunters’ trigger fingers as trophies. Find out more.
