My name is James and I write book series for young readers. Welcome to my website. This is where you can find out anything you want to know about City Spies, Framed!, Dead City, and the upcoming Sherlock Society. (I jokingly refer to all of this as the Pontiverse.)
I've tried to make the site useful to everyone from students to teachers to adults who just like to read Middle Grade.
Look around and you can explore the world of City Spies, download activities for your classroom or library, and see videos of me talking to some of my favorite author friends like Stu Gibbs and Kelly Yang.
I am so fortunate that I get to write these books and hope you enjoy them.
Be Safe and Happy Reading!
Here are some videos from the City Spies City of the Dead book tour. In one I talk with Kelly Yang about the book and in the other I talk with authors Stuart Gibbs, Steve Sheinkin, and Rebecca Barone about writing spy novels.
Here are some other videos you might enjoy and a City Spies Buzzfeed Quiz.
