More About the Author

Steve James (James Steven's is a pseudonym) I was born in a tiny cottage in South Wales next to a chapel with the illustrious name of Bethlehem. Don't get excited, according to my parents there was no Star in the East. No Wise Men and certainly no Virgin Birth. Coming from a strict Methodist background, it's hardly surprising that my formative years were shaped by the Bible. And then suddenly, at the tender age of sixteen, I joined the Royal Air Force. During those years, most of which were spent serving overseas, I was given a completely new perspective on life. Later, on the advice of my commanding officer, Squadron Leader King, who eventually became the tactical advisor for the Saudi Arabian Air Force, I turned my attention to education. After thirty four years of teaching religious studies, I retired and became an author. I'm often asked why I chose to go down this route. The answer is straightforward. Most people want to write for one of three reasons. The first is for fame, the second for financial gain and the third, because they want to express themselves. I come under the third category. I have no illusions of becoming rich and famous, but I do have so many ideas floating around my head that sometimes it drives me crazy. Suddenly, in the middle of the night I get an idea for a new book and come what may, I have to write it down. In that respect it's not different from teaching. And yes, my wife hates it. After every book, she looks at me and says - "Now that's the last, isn't it?" Hard as it is to believe, each of my novels contain a kernel of truth, a trend I intend to continue. To my surprise, all three, The Judas Codex, Satan's Alternative and The Fourth Horseman, have gone on to become best sellers. The fourth book, Children of the Gods will be available to download in June, while the fifth should be ready for Christmas 2014.

In the books preface the author informs us of how his way of thinking regarding the death and resurrection of Jesus was greatly influenced by his study of key books on this subject matter. What this book is not is a detail synopsis of those events. However what this book is, is a detailed and intriguing thriller set in West Wales which cleverly links the death and resurrection of Jesus to the treasure of the Knights Templar, a group of international terrorists and to the books hero Jared Hunter and his family blood line. The author has skilfully linked these events in a story line that keeps the reader griped until the final pages where the ending will cause the reader to think what if. As the author's first novel and set in Wales it may be considered as being a little parochial in places. Despite this, it's value for money and certain worth a read.

The Judas CodexI know it was primarily written as a horror story and it certainly delivers on that score, but it is far more than that. In places it is wickedly funny. however, if you were a woman it impresses on another level entirely, as besides everything else it is a real tear jerker.For a man his insight into the female mind is uncanny. The ending is brilliant it kept me on edge for ages afterwards,I hope that there is a follow adventure, and it is soon.

Loved It, But it certainly is controversial in places. Fortunetely the author covered his back by asserting it was a work of fiction otherwise... seen living in the Welsh Valleys as he does. What he says about the death and resurrection of Jesus will not endear him to many of the locals. Made me think though.
