James Stansfield

Yorkshire raised but now Cardiff based, James juggles writing for DoG with supporting computer applications and the demands of his ever loving wife and daughter. Star Wars, horror movies, murder mysteries, WWE wrestling, Spider-man and Pearl Jam are just some of the things he loves.

His favourite Avenger is Hawkeye and his favourite book is The Beach by Alex Garland. He likes to be in bed at “a sensible hour”.
