James Marinero grew up in West Wales and has at various times been a chef, a milkman, maths lecturer and IT consultant - but NEVER a nerd!

He has been passionately involved with boats and the sea for over fifty years and is now achieving a lifelong ambition to write novels, spending much of his writing time on his boat which he has sailed extensively in the Atlantic and as far as Brazil.

During his various careers he has worked in the Middle East, Russia, Scandinavia, the US, Kazakhstan and much of Europe.

His personal interests, career, education and travel background have equipped him well to write adventure and techno-thriller novels.

When he is not on his boat he lives on the Hampshire coast.

I don't actually keep a reading list - other than what is here on my Goodreads 'to read' shelf. Because my life involves a lot of travel I work on serenditpity - luck - finding my books in swap shops. So, in the last month I discovered Glenn Meade and Brad Taylor. 'Resurrection Day' by Glenn Meade was a terrific read and 'hit the spot' when it comes to my reading taste.(less)

A top notch thriller written with the insight of a political insider. If you loved House of Cards *same author) then you will love this although it is more action-orientated.

This is a fascinating look at risk and fear with a wide look at the psychological research which informs our understanding. It was very useful as I write thrillers which often involve terrorism themes - something that Gardner examines in depth. There ...more
