Even longer than his love affair with music has been James Fox Higgins’s love affair with words, and with great stories. Pre-loaded by his professional author father Simon Higgins, with a healthy exposure to classic literature by the likes of Rudyard Kipling, H. Rider Haggard, Bram Stoker, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle et al, fused with an early obsession with science fiction, James has been writing stories since he could wield a pen.
James first attempted a novel at age 10 – an epic fantasy tale of sentient rodents escaping evil to a promised land. Due to a commitment to his musical ambitions, the project was put on perpetual hold. But throughout his burgeoning music career, from his early teens onward, James always found time to write short stories, film treatments, full feature film scripts, plays, philosophical articles, blogs, and scratch around ideas for a full-length novel.
In 2016, James Fox Higgins has turned his attention much more deeply to his writing, and he is currently working on the last stages of his first science fiction novel, as well as developing two sequels, and simultaneously researching his first historical adventure novel.
Amidst the fiction writing, James also works as the Editor-in-Chief and major contributor to philosophical news/commentary website The Rational Right, and his own personal blog Philosopher Fox.
