James Watts was born in Birmingham, Alabama in March of 1976. Growing up in the small town of West Jefferson, Alabama, Watts spent his days lost in his vivid imagination.



At age 10, he discovered the Hardy Boys mystery series and fell in love with reading. By Age 12 the discovery of Stephen King's The Stand gave life to his need to write, to tell stories that he hoped the world would love.



It would take twenty years of rejections and working low paying jobs, and go through two divorces before he would see the publication of his horror novel Them.



James Watts currently resides in West Jefferson, Alabama and has one 19-year-old son, Bailey Watts.

My review of Led By Beasts by Clark Roberts.

For the most part, I prefer my horror prose as long, drawn-out epics, such as King's IT or The Stand, even Robert McCammon's Swan Song. But every so often, a collection of short stories comes along that gra
