JAMES LINDQUIST'S BIO

Christian Author

James at Shaniko

James Lindquist was born on March 5, 1943 as James Carl Warren and became a Christian in 1951. He rededicated his life to the Lord in 1991 and the Lord promptly baptized him in the Holy Spirit. At present, He resides in Port Angeles, Washington. He loves the Lord Jesus with all of his heart and has been a Christian for over 66 years.

In 1994, James developed an interest in writing and began taking a writing class at the local PCC College in Portland, Oregon. This class would change his life. When he started the class he didn't know an adverb from a noun. Therefore, to work in the inter-active class, he created the title, theme, and storyline of Deadly Port.

Jim would later change from fiction to nonfiction because it was his desire to help other Christians through his writing and leading of the Holy Spirit. When James first started writing, he needed a way to differentiate his fiction and nonfiction for his readers. Therefore, in honor of his deceased Swedish mom, he began writing his nonfiction with her maiden name under the pseudonym of Lindquist. He continues to write under that name today.

Jamesí passion is writing and decided to go to school and learn how to write right. So he attended CWG (Christian Writers Guild), and after three years of schooling, he graduated as a journeyman. The Lord then gave James a clear mandate to write for Him, so he no longer writes fiction and has devoted the rest of his life to writing nonfiction for God. (However, James still has a desire to try his hand at a fiction piece, and therefore works on a title in his spare time - called "Under the Sun.")

To date, James is the author of four Christian based nonfiction books: The Final Cup, Back to Eden, Seeking God and Seeking Man. Jim has to edit the first draft of Seeking Man and he will release it to publishers. The Lord is not giving Jim any time to rest in between books and gave him another mandate to write a new nonfiction book.

Considering the days that we find ourselves in, is it any wonder that his next book's theme will be the salvation of souls, with a twist. The title of this project is "The Cobblestone Road." James is excited about this new project and the direction in which God is taking him. He is very thankful that Christ loves him and gave him a part and purpose in the Kingdom of God.

James is furthering his writing education and is taking a class from Jerry Jenkin's new guild. James is a graduate of Jerry's CWG and is taking a class on fiction writing. Jerry Jenkins retired the CWG and created a more in depth and advanced guild, to which James belongs. For those buddying authors, you can reach Jerry Jenkins at https://www.jerryjenkins.com
