A graduate of the University of North Carolina and Duke Law School, James Garrison practiced law in Houston, Texas, as an in-house attorney with Texaco Inc. and its joint ventures until he was paid to go away in a corporate merger. Despite his wife’s expectation (and hope) that he would continue his legal career, he decided to stay home for the kids—in case they called from wherever they were. That’s when he started writing his first novel, QL 4, based on his experiences as a military policeman in Vietnam. QL 4 (TouchPoint Press 2017), set in the Mekong Delta during the Vietnam War, has won awards for literary and military fiction, and it was a finalist for the 2018 Montaigne Medal. His most recent novel, The Safecracker, a tongue-in-cheek legal thriller, was released in eBook and paperback by TouchPoint Press in September 2019. The Safecracker was a category finalist for the 2020 Eric Hoffer Award, a Distinguished Favorite in the Legal Thriller category for the Independent Press Awards, and a finalist in the 2020 American Fiction Awards for the Legal Thriller category. His creative nonfiction and fiction works and poems have appeared in online literary magazines and anthologies. Sheila-Na-Gig nominated his poem “Lost: On the Staten Island Ferry” for a 2018 Pushcart prize. He has a webpage:[JG1]
