Bron James is an author and actor from the forested countryside of the south of England, currently living 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. While working for Step2TV, Bron wrote over a hundred articles, ranging from news and reviews of the latest in film and television (regularly writing about Doctor Who and Sherlock) to covering events and conventions, attending film galas and premieres, and interviewing celebrities and prominent figures in the media industry.
At the start of his career, as a then-struggling actor, Bron also began writing short film scripts as a vanity project for himself to perform in, but the original drafts for these short films ended up being scrapped, never to see the light of a camera rig. It wasn’t until 2013 that 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, Bron’s self-proclaimed magnum opus. The Sam Hain series is a collection of magical realism short stories and novellas, following the supernatural adventures of the eponymous occult detective. To date, three of the stories have been published, with three more in the works (and many more rattling around inside his otherwise empty head).
While not sat at his desk diligently typing some weird fiction, Bron works as an actor 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. Bron also co-wrote and co-starred in an original pantomime, playing the villainous Wicked Walter, and also scripted and devised the narrative for a 30 minute post-modern piece in 2010 (which he will eventually get around to writing as a feature length production, or novel, or both).
In recent years, Bron has featured in a number of major film productions, including Pride (2014), The Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), In the Heart of the Sea (2015) and Victor Frankenstein (2015).
