James D. Shipman

Hello! I'm a northwest author published by Lake Union Publishing, an imprint of Amazon Publishing. I had the great fortune of connecting with my publisher and amazing editor in 2013, and I've loved every minute with them. My first historical novel, CONSTANTINOPOLIS was republished in March, 2015. My second book, GOING HOME, a civil war novel based on the true story of my great grandfather was published July 28, 2015. GOING HOME ranked as high as #2 in the Amazon Kindle Overall Paid Bestseller List. IT IS WELL, my third book, was a Kindle First selection, and ranked #3 in the Amazon Kindle Overall Paid Bestseller List. My next title, A BITTER RAIN, is available for pre-sale now and will be released in November 2017.

I love history, a passion passed on to me by my father, who passed away in 2013. I grew up on stories of the civil war, and our family history. I was able to explore my love of the past and of writing at the University of Washington, where I obtained a degree in history in 1995, followed by law school at Gonzaga University in 1998.

I still practice law, and conduct mediations, helping people settle their cases before trial. I live north of Seattle with my wonderful wife and our seven (yes seven) children and step-children.

Thank you for your support and I'd love to hear from you.
