James Firelocke worked as a wage-serf for a gigantic global technology company. Having escaped with his sanity mostly intact (but not entirely), he now writes and does freelance editing.

Firelocke is a radical supporter of local democracy and the absolute equality of all human beings. He believes we need a country whose political and economic leaders are not a pack of rich, self-serving, blithering idiots.

His hobbies are napping, meandering aimlessly, laughing at his own jokes, and reading optimism-improvement books (most of which are crap).

Firelocke can be reached at jmfirelocke@gmail.com and facebook.com/jmfirelocke.
