James Francis Hadland was born just prior to World War II in Birmingham, England. He was educated at King Edwards School, obtaining O & A Levels and later BSc & MSc in engineering. After many years as an engineer and then a lecturer, depression crept insidiously into his life and full-time work became exceptionally difficult.

James has also authored The Answers to Every Problem. Yes, Every Last One.
