My name is Fae James. I was born in Texarkana Tx in 1987. The genre of hardboiled writing has been a passion since I picked up my very first detective novel; Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett. From that moment on, it was a whirlwind romance. From the film noir movies like Sunset Boulevard and Maltese Falcon and the fancy fashion icons like Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart, Barbara Stanwyck, and Dita Von Teese, I couldn’t get enough. I was in Love. I was instantly caught up in a world of murder and mayhem, private eyes and femme fatales, and black and white…. Especially black and white. There was beauty and mystery in this world I discovered, and I wanted to share it through my eyes.
My grandmother, Katie, was an excellent storyteller. My mother says that I get my creativity from her side of the family. It’s probably why I also have a passion for classic fairytales. Tales like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and Alice in wonderland. When I decided it was time to create my own hardboiled murder mystery, I combined my two passions; fairytales, and vintage.
When I am not twisting classics, I am often found reading in a corner cuddling with my fur-child or embracing life finding inspiration everywhere. Otherwise, what is there to write about?
