"Hi my name is Michael, I am a self-taught artist from Virginia. I have been drawing since I was able to ride a school bus. My spark in to art cam from reading marvel comics and watching Saturday Morning Cartoons regularly. As time went on I didn’t follow the art career path, but it was always there. Whether it was drawing in engineering class, my free time, or watching some animation or martial arts flic, art has always been there for me.
Eventually I became an adult and started drawing on the side as a hobbie. I have sold at Cons, I have done commissions for music artists, and I have illustrated a couple books. All of this and I still feel as though my art skills aren’t worth much. My friends and family have told me otherwise, so… here you are….. reading this page, WELCOME.

"Bathed in the Blood of Ravens weaves a tale of conquest, revenge, love, loss and forbidden magic that will leave you on the edge of your seat!" - J. Veneziano

James Maxey’s mother warned him if he read too many comic books, they would warp his mind. She was right. Now an adult who can’t stop daydreaming, James is unsuited for decent work and ekes out a pittance writing down demented fantasies about masked women, fiery dragons, and monkeys. Oh god, so many monkeys.
In an effort to figure out how Superman could fly, James read a lot of science, books by Carl Sagan and Stephen Jay Gould and Stephen Hawking. Turns out, Superman probably wasn’t based on any factual information. Who would have guessed? Realizing it was possible to write science fiction without being constrained by the actual rules of science proved liberating for James, and led to the psuedo-science fiction of the Bitterwood series, superhero novels like Nobody Gets the Girl, and the steam-punk visions of Bad Wizard.
In 2015, James was honored as the Piedmont Laureate by the United Arts Councils representing Orange County, Durham County, and Wake County. This is almost certainly a sign of the ongoing cultural decay gripping the nation.
James lives in Hillsborough, North Carolina with his lovely and patient wife Cheryl and too many cats. When not writing, you'll likely find him outdoors, biking, hiking, and kayaking.
