Bron James is an author of contemporary fantasy, magical realism and science fiction literature, who currently lives in the eclectic city of London where he writes stories, drinks tea and dreams improbable dreams.
At the beginning of 2011, Bron started on his path as a writer, contributing articles about film and television for media industry news and networking website, Step2TV. The first article he penned professionally was a review of the BBC’s short-lived sci-fi drama, Outcasts. His second piece was an article about writer’s block, because he couldn’t think of anything else to write about at the time. While working for Step2TV, Bron wrote over a hundred articles, ranging from news and reviews of the latest in film and television, to covering events and conventions, attending film galas and premieres, and interviewing celebrities and prominent figures in the media industry.
As a then-struggling actor, Bron also began writing short film scripts. These were largely as vanity projects, scripts for himself to perform in when the real acting work was thin on the ground, but the original drafts for these short films ended up being scrapped, never to see the light of a studio. However, this awakened his passion for writing fiction, and in 2013 these scripts were revived, having been heavily revised and rewritten as short stories. This gave birth to All Hallows’ Eve, the first instalment of the Sam Hain - Occult Detective series. Sam Hain is a series of magical realism short stories and novellas, following the supernatural adventures of the eponymous occult detective. To date, seven Sam Hain stories have been published, with many more in the works, rattling around inside Bron’s otherwise empty head.
While not sat at his desk diligently typing some weird fiction, Bron works as an actor and supporting artist for film, theatre and television. He has featured in several theatre productions such as William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and Romeo & Juliet, and starred in a run of Moliere's The Prodigious Snob. He has also had the privilege to work with prestigious directors such as Stephen Frears, Guy Ritchie, and Ron Howard.
Bron can often be found lurking in cafes across London with his laptop and several cups of coffee, and making appearances at Comic Cons where he signs books (mainly ones he's written) and rambles on about anything and everything to anyone patient enough to listen.
