James Barrington

James Barrington is a pen name of Peter Stuart Smith who lives on the side of a mountain in Andorra in the Eastern Pyrenees surrounded by a forest of about a million trees filled with wildlife, including wild boar, and a handful of neighbours. It's hot and sunny in the summer, cold in the winter and he gets a lot of snow - several feet of it sometimes. When it all gets too much, he heads to France for a bit of peace and quiet.

His last proper job was in the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm, but today he spends most of his time writing or cruising as a guest lecturer on several cruise lines.

He also writes under the pen names Max Adams, James Becker, Tom Kasey, Thomas Payne and Jack Steel.
