About James Marinero


For those of you who want to know a little about me, I have at various times been a chef, a milkman, maths lecturer, private tutor, IT consultant and project manager, and a lifelong sailor; I'm now achieving a lifelong ambition to live on my boat and write novels.

During my careers I have worked in the Middle East, Russia, Scandinavia, the US, Kazakhstan and much of Europe. I have sailed to many of the Atlantic Islands, Brazil, the Mediterranean and North Africa in my own boat.

My educational background includes a Bachelor's degree in Physics, a postgraduate degree in Oceanography and an MBA.

Personal interests, career, education and travel equip me reasonably well as a writer of leading-edge techno thriller novels.

My own reading interests are built on having read all the Alistair Maclean, Hammond Innes, Len Deighton, Mickey Spillane and Helen MacInnes (that's a clever name she chose) books when I was a teenager. Now, I love to read John Le Carré, James Lee Burke and Lee Child (isn't Jack Reacher the best hard guy around)? 

Thank you for your interest - I promise I will do my best to entertain you with my thrillers.

There's an in-depth interview with Cathy Stucker for her blog
