Great War Won: Who Desires Peace…
Sunday, November 8th 2015
About James Emerson Loyd: James Emerson Loyd is a recovering architect and retired real estate executive, hardly apprenticeships to becoming an author of historical fiction. As an amateur historian of the twentieth century, he had long been fascinated by the First World War and how Germany's collapse in 1918 led to Europe's descent into totalitarianism. So, after reading and re-reading some Clancy and Crichton and Furst along with his histories, one day he decided to write his first novel. With a rough idea of a subject -- how that collapse could have been prevented -- he sat down at the keyboard and began writing. Before long he found himself simply taking dictation from his characters as they grew into the storyline, and a thousand pages later, he was done. A San Antonio native, he spent twenty-five years away from home then returned after marrying his high school sweetheart. They live with their two dogs (one French pointer, one German schnauzer, appropriately) in their old neighborhood.
