Excellent Books: Brontorina and over 80 books for audiences from three years old to teenagers. Many have won awards.
From His Life: James enjoyed lots of pets when he was a young child and liked to imagine what they would say to each other. Beginning with his first book, Bunnicula, you can see imaginative talking animals come to life. He and his wife also enjoyed the many vampire movies that played on late night television in the late 1970's.
Advice for Aspiring Writers: Write! and Write a lot! In an interview with Scholastic students, James said, "You'd be surprised how much you can write when you're writing every day." He also said, "Write what matters to you, write what makes you laugh, write what makes you cry, write in order to get a reaction from the reader, write because you have to, and write because it is fun for you."
