James Wade is a fiction author based in Austin, Texas. He recently signed a three-book deal with Blackstone Publishing. His debut novel, All Things Left Wild, is forthcoming in the Summer of 2020. James is represented by Mark Gottlieb at Trident Media Group.

James is a former journalist, legislative director, and political consultant. He made the switch to fiction in 2016. He is a winner of the Writers’ League of Texas Manuscript Contest, and a finalist of the Tethered by Letters Fiction Contest. James has been named a Writer-in-Residence at the Hewnoaks Artist Colony in Maine, and a Fellow at the Newnan Art Residency in Georgia.

James has spoken to several writing groups, college classes, and random bar patrons throughout the country. His presentations focus on the writing process, how to write a great query letter, and how to find the right agent for your work. He is an open book, no pun intended, and loves answering questions and talking with fellow writers.
