James Lane is a retired Florida photojournalist with decades of experience covering American life in the final years of the 20th century.
He finds ample inspiration for his characters in humanity's seemingly limitless potential for kindness and compassion, as well as in its darker side of cruelty and bloodlust. An admirer of powerful cars, rugged trucks, fancy motorcycles and exotic aircraft, Lane's driven, ridden or flown in nearly every type of motorized device. Gliders, too.
Years of exposure to firearms, edged weapons and harsh language taught him that while war is often hell, living in enslavement is worse. When not working, Lane can usually be found in a car or truck, or on a motorcycle or mountain bike. Sometimes he squints down the sights of a firearm, and occasionally, he scowls at the screen of a computer. He calls northeast Florida home. He seldom sits still.
