James Beamon has an unbelievable past, mostly because he uses his spare time writing down fabrications to sell to others. That said, he's been in the Air Force, to Iraq and Afghanistan, on the Nebula Recommended Reading List and in trouble more times than he cares to honestly admit. But he doesn't even try to sell honesty, claiming it doesn't have a believable character arc. Currently he lives with his wife, son and attack cat in Virginia and invites you all to check out what he's up to on Twitter (@WriterBeamon) or on his blog
