James A. Owen has been working professionally as an illustrator and storyteller for more than two decades, which is notable mostly because he’s still comfortably in his thirties.

To date, in addition to numerous illustration and design projects, James has written and illustrated two dozen STARCHILD comics and books which remain in print as the six-volume ESSENTIAL STARCHILD set and the forthcoming COMPLETE ESSENTIAL STARCHILD.

The story will be continuing in STARCHILD: MYTHOPOLIS II.

The first book in a series of prose novels written by James titled MYTHWORLD (Kai Meyer’s MYTHENWELT in Germany) won the 2003 AI award for Best Novel, and was nominated alongside books by Stephen King and Michael Crichton for the prestigious Phantastik Preis for Best International Novel.

HERE, THERE BE DRAGONS, the first in the Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica, was published by Simon & Schuster in the Fall of 2006, followed by THE SEARCH FOR THE RED DRAGON, THE INDIGO KING, and the forthcoming THE SHADOW DRAGONS. At least three more books are in the planning stages, as well as a few related surprises…

James works at the Coppervale Studio, a 14,000 square foot, century-old restored church in Northeastern Arizona.
