More About the Author

I love to read, and it's because of this that I love to write too.

Books allow you to dip your toes into other worlds, to experience that which you would never otherwise have the opportunity to experience - whether it's here on earth or somewhere in the stars. And that's what I hope my readers get from my books, a chance to get away, to become someone else, to be somewhere else, just for a while.

My debut novel is The Righteous Dead, the story of two ordinary people caught in up in the middle of a 60-year old conspiracy. I hope you enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and engaging throughout 2 Feb 2012
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition
The Righteous Dead is a fantastic read, I couldn't put it down! James Gardner has a knack for keeping the audience engaged by keeping the plot moving at an an exciting pace, whilst still maintaining a depth to the characters sometimes lost in more action focused novels. I was worried I might be a bit squeamish for a zombie book, but actually the idea of this book isn't to scare (like some horror books) but is more focused in a brilliantly written post-apocalyptic sci-fi genre. I would definitely recommend this book - it's enjoyable throughout. I hope to see more work from James Gardner in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars a bit short, but was fun to read! 30 Jun 2014

Could have done with some more character development but for a first book it was a good read and I enjoyed the story. 3 out of 5 because there could have been much more added to the story line but the overall plot was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolute page turner 16 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
My first zombie book and I was a little apprehensive. No need for that, it's a fast paced, multi plot experience, that keeps you going right through to the end. And what an end, never expected that !!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 28 May 2012
By Maggie
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a big fan of zombie books and was looking forward to reading this one from the other reviews. Not sure we read the same book. Plot was really silly. Characters not at all believable and although zombie plots are obviously by nature a bit far fetched, this one took ages to get going and was then full of incredible coincidences and very unlikely happenings. Would not recommend, there are lots of better zombie books.
