VJ Books Presents James W. Hall!

Author James W. Hall James W. Hall is the author of 18 novels. Thirteen of which, like his most recent Going Dark, (December, 2013), feature a hardcore loner named Thorn, who makes a meager living tying bonefish flies. Thorn, and his private eye pal, Sugarman, have teamed up in a dozen books to thwart animal smugglers, cruise ship hijackers, rogue medical experimenters, and other assorted villains. For a man who simply wants to be left alone to contemplate the island light and sweet sea breezes of Key Largo, Thorn has been drawn into a long string of adventures to right wrongs and avenge the deaths of his friends, relatives and lovers and has taken innumerable gashes and wounds and scars in the process.

Hall’s non-fiction work includes Hot Damn! a collection of personal essays he wrote for the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel’s Sunshine Magazine, as well as some he wrote for the Washington Post and The Miami Herald. His most recent non-fiction effort is Hit Lit (Random House) which is an analysis of twelve of the most commercially successful novels of the last century and the dozen features those books have in common.

Starting out his writing life as a poet, Hall published four collections of poetry, three of them with Carnegie-Mellon University Press. His poems appeared in Poetry, American Scholar, North American Review, Antioch Review, Poetry Northwest, and many other literary magazines.

Hall is also the author of two collections of short stories. Paper Products (W.W. Norton), and Over Exposure, an ebook that contains his Edgar Award winning short story, “The Catch.”

Several of his novels were optioned for film and Hall wrote the screenplays for two of those projects, Bones of Coral, MGM-Pathe, Gruscoff-Levy Producers. (Co-writer, Les Standiford) And Under Cover of Daylight, (screenplay), Nelson Entertainment, Red Bank Studios Producers. He also wrote a television series pilot for Renfield Productions..
