2012 Book Festival Author
James Strauss

Author Biography

James Strauss writes for the television series House. He's also written a pre-history novel, The Boy, that Disney Studios will film as The Mastodons. And he's written a thriller, Bering Sea, that is awaiting publication.

Strauss states, "I write about the human condition and the individual's attempt to overcome adversity, while clinging to their social values and mores. My novels are about self-determination and self-discovery. They are about arrival. The meaning of life is all around us and ever changing, depending upon the perspective of others. I write about the meaning of self, and its relevance to the meaning of life."

Strauss lives in Lake Geneva.
