Thank you for visiting my twisted world of art and writing.  You will find quite a bit of madness here.  I work on a wide variety of projects and would like to share some of them here with you, to include owning and producing for Tacitus Publishing.

Feel free to peruse and come back to visit as things will constantly be added.

The Worlds of James S. Austin
The Path Below
I was born and raised near St. Petersburg, Florida.  I went into the Army straight out of high school and worked as a Military Intelligence Analyst for 5 years; to include working with Special Forces and a tour in South Korea.  Following my honorable discharge, I spent a number of years in college, completing a BA in Anthropology, a BA in History, and a certificate in Crime Scene Technology.  My working years have included being a licensed repossession agent and part-owner of a repossession service, skip tracer, and wandering the stacks at college libraries.  Currently, I am the owner/editor of Tacitus Publishing.  For the last couple of years, Tacitus Publishing has been focused on creating gaming content for 5E.  I have edited three anthologies, 'It's a Grimm Life', 'Haunted by the Past', and 'Shattered Space'.  I have published a few short stories and write for a number of blogs, to include the serial 'Chronicles of Ballidrous - The Tales of Devryn'.  When not writing or editing, I spend my time as a traditional and digital artist.
