With great humility and a very grateful heart I would like to introduce my editor. As usual I have to say what needs be said. What is within is mine ... for better or worse. My limitations as a scribe no reflection on the brilliant mind and loving man I know James Audlin to be.
James David Audlin is an American author living in Panama, after previously living in France.
A retired pastor, college professor, and newspaper opinion page editor, he is best known as the author of "The Circle of Life" and translator of "The Gospel of John".
He has written about a dozen novels, several full-length plays, several books of stories, a book of essays, a book of poetry, and a book about his adventures in Panama featuring his own photographs.
Fluent in several languages, he has translated his novel "Rats Live on no Evil Star" into French ("Palindrome") and Spanish ("Palíndromo").
He also is a professional musician who composes, sings, and plays several instruments, though not usually at the same time.
He is married to a Panamanian lady who doesn't read English, and so is blissfully ignorant about his weirdly strange books. However his adult daughter and son, who live in Vermont, USA, are aware, and are wary, when a new book comes out.
