James Austen has written two well received plays and adapted Oscar Wilde's "Happy Prince" for theatre and schools.
He has directed for the stage and acted on stage and television.
James regrets that has had too many careers, including that of drama teacher, but most he would rather forget.
Although James loves sleeping and can be incredibly lazy, when it comes to writing, he finds it hard to stop, and often writes till he drops. Writing has always been his greatest joy.
James has written in many genres, but likes it most when he can sneak in past your rational mind and address your groin directly.
James wishes his surname was Brown, because he would rather be bad than literary. Help this poor, posh boy achieve his dream - write to someone, complain, he should be stopped.
Innocence Lost, Grail Found
My own healing is a gradual process. I have been diffusing emotional triggers for years, but still the morning papers with stories of Cyril Smith or Jimmy Saville can upset my equilibrium. But I am, nevertheless, emotionally strong. My current work is in re-aligning and redefining my defences so they are more appropriate to real life here and now and not automatic reactions to the distant past. But also I hope I can share something else, the inner, subjective reality. The only truth we can know.
