James C. Gammage was born and raised in Southeast Texas, in a small woodsy town called Lumberton. He developed an interest in writing while being grounded for shenanigans he and his friends got up to in his youth and the time spent alone with his thoughts allowed his nascent creative drive to come to life.

He has spent the last fifteen years of his life in the US Army and is currently in Maryland, where he lives with his wife Christa.

Though there are many stand-alone novels planned, the first work he is dedicating his efforts toward are the six novels planned for the Universal Alliance Chronicles, a series born of a simple question in 1997: "What if you were from another planet and didn't know it?"

Since then, he has spent years of his life d

While…moreI spent some years as a sort of amateur "paranormal investigator" before finally accruing enough (lack of) evidence to fully become an atheist. While I now conclusively don't believe in nonsense like psychic abilities, ghosts, etc - I do enjoy reading good fiction concerning these topics.

There was ONE event that happened with a good friend of mine, Chase Williams, that "might" make for a good story, but I don't know where I'd even begin with the plot.

We were on a road in SE Texas - Bragg Road (natives know the story) - basically, the typical "this used to be a rail line, and a conductor lost his head, now his spirit searches for his head..." you know the drill.

Anyway, not believing a word of that, we went out there during Thanksgiving back in 2012, and we drove maybe a mile or two in, parked the truck, and got out. A few minutes after walking down this road, we saw what I can only described as a super-bright multicolored floating light that crossed from one side of the road to the other about 100 meters from us.

No clue what it was.

Do I think it was a ghost? Hell no. But something was there. We went back several times trying to see this thing again, and it never reappeared.

That might make for a good short story or flash fiction.(less)

I usually go into a hole and waste time. Video games, movies, tv.

But I did find that by pulling out a "Writer's Toolbox" my wife bought me for my birthday, that I was able to reignite my imagination by playing around with the exercises included in the box.

From there, I turned my focus back on Retrieval and finished it. Now, I'm about 20,000 words into Reunions and the only thing I can suggest is to "keep writing" even if you get hung up on your current project.(less)

Definitely one of my go-to authors.

Kaku's work speaks for itself. If you're interested in theoretical physics, he is able to explain it in such a way the layperson can easily step right in and understand the advanced concepts he writes about. I recom

Quite an informative and easy-to-digest read on the various ways the Earth could be destroyed or see all life wiped out. Key take-away for me is that an impact event with either an asteroid or comet will happen at some point and the odds are estimate ...more
