James Carol

in The United Kingdom
January 01, 1969



James Carol was born in Scotland in 1969, where he spent his early years. He moved to England in the eighties and has lived there ever since. At various times he has worked as a guitarist, sound engineer, guitar tutor, journalist, and a horse riding instructor.

The character of Jefferson Winter came about because he wanted to write a series of books that gave him as much freedom as possible. He figured that the more interesting he kept things for himself, the more interesting it would be for the reader.

Although the novels are written as a series, James approaches each book as a stand-alone. Each story is set in a different location, and has a different cast of characters. The beauty of this approach is that the novels can be read out of orde

“I’d been given the hard stare by men a lot more dangerous than Donald Cole, men who would cut you up before breakfast then eat your heart and liver for lunch, and laugh with glee while they were doing it.”
james carol, Broken Dolls

“Siempre que tomamos una decisión crucial en nuestra vida hay un momento cumbre, un hecho lo bastante importante como para inclinar la balanza a un lado o a otro.”
James Carol, Muñecas rotas

“La foto había sido retocada con un programa de ordenador. La piel de Rachel era la de una modelo; habían retocado el color para que resplandeciera como una manzana. Era un error. Había que humanizar a la víctima, no deshumanizarla. Es la imperfección la que nos hace humanos. En las arrugas y en las líneas de expresión llevamos escrita la historia de nuestra vida.”
James Carol, Broken Dolls
