A little about the author

James Francis Peck

Biography

Reading has always been a part of my life, from biographies to novels, manga to news articles. It makes up a big chunk of my day, both for entertainment or research purposes. Having a wide interest range has kept me busy, however geting all the ideas out of my head onto paper is my number one priority. 

I started writing website articles many years ago for an LGBT+ company in London that focused on popular cultural interests. I often critiqued artists work, interviewing celebrities to talk about their lives and loves. While I found this interesting it was quite restrictive having to follow the editors' ideas on how the site should evolve (or not).

Shortly after I broke away and formed boy-fresh with my partner and had many successful and fun years writing about our favourite people, music and film. This all took a bit chunk of our time and quite often we were working halfway through the night to get the next article or issue finished. Deciding that we were just too tired to think (let alone have time out for relaxing) we both stepped back and decided to concentrate on other activities, but I always missed the days when we worked together on LGBT+ content.

The time came again when I wanted to write and so I decided to re-imagine Boy-Fresh for the current market and engage my passion for storytelling through novels, screen-plays, poems and articles.

My ongoing work is concentrated on the sci-fi and fantasy market where I have the most fun. Using my knowledge and background I aim to create LGBT+ positive material that is part of life experiences that people can relate to. My passion is to use writing for inclusion and equality, not about box ticking. I came to the realisation that trying to prove one persons' point of view is more valid than another is futile in an everchanging world. 

Below you can find a list of current projects that are designed as screenplays, novels and articles that would be great for a wide range of applications such as Films, TV, Anime and more.

What stuff do I like?

Photography

With a hunger for the different, strange and unique, I look for the beauty in nature and human creations that go deeper into the mind searching for answers using form, texture, lighting and pattern. All are of equal importance and add depth to the overall composition bringing a special 'something' that makes it stand out. Occasionally I also get ''photographers fluke' which is always a bonus when you have a subject that just shines all on its own.

Artistic Design

From a rough sketch to a finished design, from screen to paint and back again. Every material, every stroke, every line is just a part of the process to make unforgettable artworks that projects quality and refinement. I love to paint and draw new pieces of art work but also just like the master's love to recreate work by others too for my own enjoyment. Building up layers often over years I enjoy the warmth of the feeling transferred to the subject on the artboard.

Writing

Writing is a medium I enjoy every day and no matter how short or long whether it be a poem or a novel, every word is set to paper or screen in a way that touches the readers soul. Your journey could be floating away on a gentle summer breeze on the back of a mythical creature or freeze in the depths of a dark foreboding chasm with the enemy hot in pursuit with only a small lantern to light your way. Words can be used in so many ways but ultimately it is stories that help us visualise and remember.

What I am made up of ...

We are all made up of star dust... or so they say. I tend to think of my body in cups of coffee, noms (food), spunk and sleeping time. That does not mean that I lack any other bits of me, just that I can not list them all for you here.
