James Clemens

James Clemens was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1961. With his three brothers and three sisters, he was raised in the Midwest and rural Canada. There, he explored cornfields, tadpoles, and frozen ponds, dreaming of worlds and adventures beyond the next bend in the creek.

Eventually, forced to grow up, he went to school at the University of Missouri, where he graduated with a doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1985.

During one especially icy Midwestern winter, the lure of ocean, sun, and new horizons eventually drew him to the West Coast where he established his veterinary practice in Sacramento, California. Presently, he shares his home with a Golden Retriever named Penny and a Miniature Dachshund named Paiwakit.He has been a spinner of tales since his childhood; Wit'ch Fire was his first novel, translated into a dozen languages worldwide. Shadowfall is his latest novel, introducing a new world, new magik, new adventure.
