A Little Bit About Me
Hello and welcome to my website! I'm James Stryker, a writer who dreams of being read. My first novel, Assimilation, is now available from Momentum/Pan Macmillan. I'm beyond excited to share it with the world and hope you'll take a look! I'm also thrilled to be working with Ninestar Press on my two forthcoming novels, Boy: A Journey and The Simplicity of Being Normal.
I currently live in small-town Pennsylvania, though I grew up in Ogden, Utah. How did I make it here? There's no better reason for a cross country move than to be with the love of your life (a writer of the young adult variety, constant inspiration, and expert maker of fajitas). I also share a residence with a pack of pugs who keep my world full of strange scents and my sweaters covered in fur.
Until I’m able to do nothing but write (Walden with Wi-Fi), I am part of the leadership team at a customer service center where my primary responsibilities include coaching/mentoring and ensuring that the coffee pot is turned off on Saturdays. When not writing, I can be found reading, listening to opera at obscene decibels, wearing pedantic vests/sweaters with large buttons, and trying to figure out who in our neighborhood has fabric softener that smells like Dr. Pepper.
