A veteran novelist, James Byron Huggins' life story reads more like fiction than fact. After working as a newspaper reporter, Huggins left journalism to help persecuted Christians in eastern Europe. From Texas, he worked with the Christian underground in the Iron Curtain, spending his life savings and becoming homeless. Huggins left America to offer assistance to Romanian Christians. He often remained hidden for days at a time in order to survive. After returning home, Huggins again worked as a journalist before becoming a policeman. Huggins then left law enforcement to pursue full-time writing.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am the author of other titles you might be
familiar with, including Cain and Leviathan. My
next project, The Scam, which is a novel about a
government conspiracy, will be release by
WHITAKER HOUSE in early 2005 - keep your eyes
open for that one!
What was your motivation behind this project? I love to explore the depth of human nature, and
by writing, I am able to take on other personas
and see the world through someone else's eyes.
Such is the case with this project - I came away
from the book with a deeper understanding of what
motivates us, as human beings, to choose between
right and wrong.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that readers will gain a deeper and more
entertaining and engaging idea of the powers of
right and wrong from this story. The power of
good and evil in our world is very real, and that
idea is explored in an entertaining way in this
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I am looking very forward to the release of my
new novel, The Scam, by WHITAKER HOUSE, in early
