Bio: James Hanna wandered Australia for seven years before settling on a career in criminal justice. He spent twenty years as a counselor in the Indiana Department of Correction and recently retired from the San Francisco Probation Department, where he was assigned to a domestic violence and stalking unit. Due to his criminal justice background, the criminal element figures strongly in his writing.

James has had more than fifty story publications and received three Pushcart nominations. Many of his stories are included in his anthology, A Second Less Capable Head and Other Rogue Stories, recipient of a silver medal from the Independent Press Awards. James is also the author of Call Me Pomeroy, which chronicles the misadventures of a narcissistic street musician on parole (a Readers’ Favorite International gold medal winner), and The Siege, a fictional depiction of a hostage takeover in an Indiana penal facility (bronze medalist in literary fiction from Readers’ Favorite International).

James is also a former fiction editor of The Sand Hill Review. Find out more at
