Alicia McEldon

Have you ever caught a glimpse of something so ordinary, yet it sparked an extraordinary tale in your mind? That’s precisely what happened to our guest, James D. Reed an author who spun a photograph of a church into the gripping first chapter of his debut novel. In today’s episode, he shares the raw and honest genesis of his writing career, his unedited anthology published as a testament to his origins, and how a tribute to a fallen army friend shaped the heart of his book set in Kentucky. As we wade through the landscape of his creativity, we also uncover how his passions for photography and candle-making with his wife Jessica intersect with his narratives, offering a unique window into the author’s personal and entrepreneurial life.

Strap in as we navigate the thrilling realm of publishing with a seasoned writer who not only crafts gripping tales but also breathes life into his characters through his own military experiences and personal relationships. You’ll get an insider’s look at the making of a political thriller series set against the DC Metro area’s underbelly and the exciting anticipation for the prequel’s release coming this September. For those penning their first drafts or building their business from the ground up, our guest imparts wisdom on the power of persistence and the incremental victories that pave the road to success. As we wrap up, discover where you can continue to follow our guest’s journey and gather more of his insights into writing and entrepreneurship.
