Welcome

My latest book, Too Beautiful For Words, takes place in 1993, San Francisco, California. It is the second book in the detective series. It not a who-done-it-mystery. Rather it deals with what evil turned innocence into public enemy number one. Read how  private investigator Sammy Shovel solves a worldwide assassin gang. The leader is so bold he fools everyone, even Sammy until at the end he put's it all together and worms out what really happened in the first chapter. The story also includes a missing person an insurance company wants him found, because the insurer had a million dollar policy and they must pay in two months.

About Ronald James

Ronald M. James was born during the great depression, and as a toddler watched WPA men build a new street, from his home’s big front window. His playmates were a red rider wagon, a small black satchel and rocks. By using his imagination he had conversations with mythical street workers that bloomed into fashioned fantasies by age four. He used cardboard boxes to create fun spaces for his neighborhood playmates to enjoy and he kept telling stories all through high school. In college he abandoned writing and studied architecture. James had a successful architectural career and retired, however he wanted to keep his creative juices fluent, so he returned to his childhood story telling days and joined a writers group. Like architecture, each day he couldn’t wait to create, finish, and start new stories—like, Harrington Manor.
