James Jauncey - Author

James, or Jamie, Jauncey, was born in Perthshire but raised in Edinburgh's New Town. His family later moved back to Perthshire, while he attended a boarding school in Oxford. Jauncey read law at Aberdeen University, before working as a journalist and magazine publisher. He left London after 20 years to focus on his own writing.

Jauncey has written four books for children and young adults, but only the latest, The Witness, is in print. The Reckoning will be published in August 2008. When not writing, he runs creative writing workshops and courses, helping businesses improve the quality and imaginative effort of their written materials. He is a part of 26, an organisation promoting creative writing in business. Jauncey is also on the board of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

Besides writing, he has played in a number of bands, including the piano for The Funky String Band. He currently lives with his wife and two of his children near Dunkeld.
