R. Franklin James grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her love of writing was nourished at the early age of eight when she and her best friend would write wandering tales of pirates and damsels in distress. She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley where she cultivated a different type of writing—legislation and public policy. After a career of political advocacy she focused on her first love, writing, and in 2013 her debut novel, The Fallen Angels Book Club, was published by Camel Press, Seattle, WA. This was the first book in the Hollis Morgan mystery series, her second book, Sticks & Stones, was released in May 2014. Her third book in the series: The Return of the Fallen Angels Book Club will be released May 2015. James is married with two sons and resides in northern California.
