My name is James Riser and I write genre fiction, I'm also interested in Video Game Journalism.

Background Information

My name is James Riser. I was a contributing editor and columnist for from August 2010 to its unfortunate close on March 18th, 2011. I wrote news posts plus a bi-weekly column that focused on Fighting Games called Quarter Circle Punch. I currently write reviews for New Game Network. I also have also published many short fiction stories and a novella with e-book publisher, Wild Child publishing.

I've loved writing since high school. I've written mostly genre fiction; starting with Horror and eventually Science Fiction. More recently, I've been trying my hands at poetry, which I've always been fascinated with but never thought I had the ability to actually write. 

Creatively, I'd love to publish Science Fiction and horror short stories. I also want to become a better poet, because it's outside of my comfort zone. Professionally, I'd want to write Video Game news and reviews for a magazine or major web site for a living. This will combine my love of Video Games with my knack for writing. Sometimes I think I'm putting a little too much on my plate, but as time goes on I'm pretty sure my aspirations will become more focused. 

One of my biggest influences is Stephen King, since his work was what inspired me to start reading on a regular basis. Even though, at first, I exclusively wrote Horror I started to become more interested in Science Fiction as well. The work of Isaac Asimov is what turned me on to the genre and taught me that not every story has to be heavily action based to make it interesting. Other names on the list include Clive Barker, Edgar Allen Poe, Timothy Zan, J.K. Rowling, R.A. Salvatore, H. P. Lovecraft. 

Outside of writing, I work two part time jobs and attend college full time.
