Author Biography

Jim Robinson spends his spare moments reading and writing for more adventurous times and patriotic people.

Jim draws inspiration from Tom Clancy, an American novelist best known for his technically detailed espionage and military-science novels. Born in Baltimore, Tom Clancy was an insurance agent before he went on to write blockbuster espionage books, including ‘The Hunt for Red October’, ‘Patriot Games’ and ‘Clear and Present Danger.’

Jim notes the similarities in his career path to Tom Clancy’s. Jim worked in the Financial Services industry as an insurance agent, Certified Financial Planner and a General Principal for several large financial firms before writing his first book, ‘Changing Faces – America’s Wealth Advisors.”

Jim then turned his attention to his first military fiction novel, ‘The Sixth Extinction.’ Now comes his second military fiction novel, ‘Accelerant – Continental Drift.’

Jim wants you to know he was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia…where as a boy, he watched huge container ships travel up and down the Savannah River. Savannah is also home to two military bases, Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Air Force base. Jim also lived and worked in Fairbanks Alaska.

Jim loves spending as much time as he can ‘Billfishing’ in the waters near Tortola BVI and Puerto Rico. He also loves hunting in. Alaska as the Sun Dogs dance across the sky. Jim is currently working on several fiction and nonfiction novels.

Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite

Accelerant: Continental Drift by James Morris Robinson is a riveting novel featuring political intrigue, terrorism, and crime, a colossal tale that is as epic as it is engaging. The earth has been abused, polluted, and altered in very negative ways and the Genesis Organisation can’t stand aside and watch it die. Once defeated by the United States Military forces, this shadowy but powerful group retreated into hiding, but now they are returning; well-prepared, well-equipped, and with a force that no one can stop. They have chosen the most unlikely place to wage war against humankind — the Mid-Atlantic Oceanic Ridge. Their mission: create a new earth under one government. Can anyone stop the highly skilled assassins or the battleships that are about to be unleashed on the world? Will this create the fix they have dreamed about or an apocalypse?

James Morris Robinson’s work is highly imaginative, featuring a phenomenon that may be fictional but which powerfully reflects the current situation of the earth. The author masterfully integrates interesting themes into the story like climate change, human mindlessness about the health of the universe, political intrigue, and a lot more. The conflict is well-developed and the plot is built around the huge conflict. The plot moves very fast. Accelerant: Continental Drift features intense action, and great and compelling descriptions. Readers will enjoy the absorbing dialogues, well-crafted to read naturally. The dialogue helps in both plot and character development. As I read on, I couldn’t help but imagine how this story could play out on screen. It’s an entertaining read, but it is, above all, a powerful call to awareness.
