James H. Longmore
I hail originally from Yorkshire, England having relocated with my family to Houston, Texas in 2010. I have an honors degree in Zoology and a background in sales, marketing and business. I am relatively new to the writing arena, having begun in earnest five years ago. I have three novels out in 2016; the skin-crawling, creature horror; ‘‘Pede’ (published by Black Bed Sheet Books), ‘The Erotic Odyssey of Colton Forshay’ (a bizarro style fantasy, Fat Lip Press June 21 2016), ‘And Then You Die’ – a particularly grotesque horror/bizarro story (published by J Ellington Ashton - TBA), and in 2017, ‘Flanagan’ - a psychosexual horror (Sinister Grin Press). I also have the extreme horror novella Buds (Morbid Books) out now!. In addition, there are the short stories; (‘Winning & Losing’) published in The Ripple Effect (Horrified Press), ‘Road Trip Bingo’ (Black Bed Sheet Books’ anthology 'Bumps in the Road’), ‘The Five Towns Pageant’ (J Ellington Ashton ‘Full Moon Slaughter’, Halloween 2016), ‘Zombie Hooker: A Love Story’ (Fat Lip Press ‘Carnival of Gore’ anthology 2016) and ‘Trophy Wife’ (The Creeps magazine, date TBA). I write screenplays and currently have three under option (a spine-chilling horror, a Tarantino-esque crime caper and an animated family movie). In 2014 I was commissioned by Spectra Records to write a biopic feature on the early life of Bob Marley, and was writer for hire on the Kenyan sitcom ‘The Samaritans’. As if that weren’t enough, I have written and directed a bunch of short movies, winning Best Director in the 2013 Splatterfest film competition and Remi awards at Houston’s Worldfest Film Festival in 2012, 2014 and 2015. In my spare time, I pen and perform stand-up comedy on the Houston comedy circuit. My writing style has been described as uncompromising, unique and entertaining; I combine original ideas with brilliant vocabulary and highly effective yarn spinning in which the story always comes first! Be warned, my work does have a tendency towards the dark side – usually with a rich vein of humor – and there is always a delicious twist at the end! www.jameslongmore.comRead more Read less
