AUTHOR

James Becker

Born in Cambridge, England, James Becker had a variety of jobs, including working in a mortuary and on a factory production line before joining the Royal Navy as a helicopter pilot. A medical problem ended his flying career and he transferred to the Air Traffic Control branch, where he spent the rest of his time in the service. This included working on a variety of ships, including three aircraft carriers, as well as at a number of shore stations. He was the Air Staff Officer on board HMS Illustrious during the Falklands Campaign, and ended his career doing staff jobs in the London area, including work classified at Top Secret level and above.
On leaving the service, he moved to the Principality of Andorra, where he still lives today. His first thriller, written under the pseudonym 'James Barrington' and entitled 'Overkill' was published in 2004, and was followed by several other novels and a non-fiction book 'Joint Force Harrier' about the Afghan campaign. He also writes as 'Max Adams', producing WW2 thrillers, as well as the 'James Becker' historical mystery series. James Becker is a pseudonym.
