About the Author James Rouch.


James Rouch has been a full-time writer for twenty-eight years. In that time he has had fourteen books published. Three of them are novels of the Second World War. TIGER, set in Northern France during the breakout from the Normandy beachhead. THE WAR MACHINES, set in North Africa and GATEWAY TO HELL, dealing with the fighting for Monte Cassino in Italy. All went to reprints with translation rights sold to several countries..

A series of ten novels entitled THE ZONE has comprised the rest of his output. Again on the subject of war their theme is an alternative near future where the Berlin Wall did not fall. Instead the cold war suffered meltdown. A war across Europe imploded, concentrating itself in a great contaminated swathe of territory slashed across the continent, a huge no-mans land, THE ZONE.

Those novels were published in the UK and the USA. The series was also taken by a Spanish publisher, with other translation rights sold. A tenth novel in the series has recently been published on CD, along with his entire back-list by an Australian company developing computer and internet roll-play games based on THE ZONE series. Further novels have been commissioned.

James Rouch lives and works in the West of England, on the edge of a town surrounded by some of the most beautiful landscape England has to offer. Before becoming a successful author and literary agent he worked in marketing and public relations within the motor and jewellery trades. His experience of life has been rounded off with spells as a bodyguard, the owner of a popular tourist pub' and as a salesman of everything from funeral vehicles to diamonds.
