James McKenna was born during the bombing of London during WWII, and being the son of a British Army officer, he spent time in postwar Austria before moving to the Far East with his family. He enlisted in the British Army at the age of 15 and attended Harrogate's apprenticeship college, then the Royal School of Military Engineering. He was selected for the Paras at the age of 17 and served in the Gulf and Europe. After that, he ran his own electronic and physical security company, which provided him with insider information for his crime thrillers The Unseen, The Uncounted, The Unwanted, and Global Raider. In addition to these crime thrillers, he has dabbled in the action/fantasy realm of the young reader aged 12+.
In the Mind Traveller series, The Witch's Shadow is the second installment. The Mind Traveller, the first book in the series, is available on Amazon and Kindle. Warrior of the Light, the third novel, will be released soon. He splits his time between the UK, Portugal, and Ireland as a full-time writer.
