Short Brief About Sidney St. James

This is short brief on Sidney St James. Sidney St. James is a popular American novelist, pumping out title after title over the last two decades. His writing career has spanned over forty years including other pen names in different genres.


Sidney St. James was born in Eagle Lake, Texas, in the early 1950’s. He wrote his first historical novel in 1972 while attending Texas A&M University called AdversityFace to Face. Although drafted in the ‘70’s, it was not published until 2005. Over the next several years, James’ love for writing delved into creative historical nonfiction with true and exciting novels in the Faith Chronicles, The Lincoln Assassination Series, and the Texas Outlaw Series. One of the top-selling books in the Faith Chronicles, Faith Seventy Times Seven, made the best-seller status on and helped launched his career worldwide. The story was inspired by his grandmother, Ada Caston Slaton Bonds, the first ordained woman minister in the state of Louisiana for the Cumberland Presbyterian Church who was addressed as the Mother of all Presbyteries by the General Assembly.

This novel has also received an invitation for a screen-write for worldwide distribution. James is working on this project, but it has taken a back burner for his Vincent Gideon Detective Series to be completed in 2017.

After a dozen novels in creative historical nonfiction, he went from his original pen name, Sean E. Jacobs, to Sidney St. James in his writing of The Blue Flaming Sword, a paranormal romance. The novel that kicked off the Storm Lord Trilogy Series was an immediate success and he became a fan favorite, in the process of transforming the paranormal romance genre. This novel was followed up by Nine Months Will Tell and The Three Keys to Apocalypse.
