A summer without WiFi forced a then 12-year-old James Hardman into his own imagination in search of entertainment. What he found was a world ravaged by the dead and void of any adult guidance or protection.  He grabbed a legal pad and penned the imaginary adventure him and his friends undertook. One of physical and moral struggles and more than enough gore to concern his parents.

They consulted a mental health professional that assured them he wasn't scary coo coo, just a talented writer with a vivid imagination.

After several years of soliciting publishers and making edits, the now 17-year-old writer has his first published book... Trying to Survive
