About the Author

Bio James M. Copeland I was born in Walker County, raised in Cullman County in Birdsong, Alabama. After my father died during WW-2 my mother built a wood frame house across the road from my grandfather. The state road that ran between the houses also connected Arab, Alabama, and Cullman, Alabama. It was gravel, and there were no electricity. I finished high school, got married, and headed out to the work force. God gave us two fine children, a boy and a girl. I finished two years of correspondence classes through Kensington University to help me get a job. I learned how to build cabinets, and take a jet engine apart and put it back together. Then I became a Warrant Officer in the Army, learned how to fly helicopters, and got my license in fixed wing single engine aircraft. I joined the sales field, selling meat products for the Rath Packing Company out of Waterloo Iowa, and then advanced to commercial foods for restaurants at The John Sexton and Company located in Atlanta, Georgia. I moved up to management in Kansas City, Missouri and finally purchased my own company selling restaurant equipment and supplies, along with selling, installing, and repairing American Standard Heating and cooling equipment. The name of my company was CAFÉ, INC. I am retired from the public work place, after many years of sales, management and ownership of businesses. I hired and fired people, studied psychology, observed actions, and results and gained an insight in the workings of peoples mind. This helps immensely the process of contemplating the things a certain type of character would say in any given time. I have accomplished many things in my lifetime, but nothing more satisfying than what I’m doing now. I have a great feeling of accomplishment just having reached this phase of my new career in writing. My first published novel, Bottom Bones, is spotlighted on my web site. (www.jamesmcopelandbooks.com) You can read the first chapter and make your own decision. The Escapes of Madlyn Witherspoon was started in 2009 and received many changes until the present moment. I have 16 other manuscripts finished that I am working on now for publication soon.

More About the Author

If I were to tell you I am a good writer, you would say, show me! Ok, my work is attached. The thing I can tell you truthfully is that I am capable of producing several more novels concerning mysteries. I like my characters, Frank Hawthorn, the detective, and others in the first book, bottom Bones. I can see several things Frank can do also I already have another book length novel finished, The Hole in the Bottle. I have already written three other novels that can be adjusted to reflect the characters involved in these book as well.

My work is steady; I spend at least four hour each morning and then after lunch work until five o'clock, come rain or shine. This allows me to spend time thinking of actions, characters, sequences, and other plots that each character may or may not possess. I have studied the Writers Market books, Jeff Herman's Guide to Book Publishing, and read daily the Morgen Bailey Interviews. I am a daily visitor to the Writer's Net, Publishers Marketplace on the internet and have many other addresses I visit on a regular basis to add to my writing skills.

I am retired from the public work place, after many years of management and ownership of businesses. I hired and fired people, observed actions, and results and gained an insight in the workings of peoples mind. This helps immensely the process of contemplating the things a certain type of character would say in any given time.

I am capable of working a marketing schedule, seeking interviews in radio and television, holding book signings at bookstores, and any other legwork I might be required to handle in the sales of my novels. I am dedicated to this aspect of becoming a best seller of novels and welcome meeting the potential customers. I am a good salesman when it comes to telling my story. I was born with the knack of telling stories. Just ask my Grand paw, (sorry, he is dead, but he would let you know in a hurry if he were here that I could tell a whopper if required.)

I have accomplished many things in my lifetime, but nothing is more satisfying than what I am doing now. I have a great feeling of accomplishment just having reached this phase of my new career in writing.
