James Anthony was born in Essex, England in 1970. He followed an unconventional path to writing, cutting his teeth building cars for Ford Motor Company prior to a successful career as a technology entrepreneur. But through it all, he never lost his love of poetry and the power of the written word.
James's debut book, 'Shakespeare's Sonnets, Retold', breathes new life into the Bard's personal writings of love, passion and heartbreak in a contemporary, iambic pentameter rewrite.
