Overview

In 2005, at the age of 23, James Cummins moved to Montreal, Quebec after living his entire life in Alberta. Over the following seven years Cummins wrote three major unpublished works-two novels and an absurdist piece of theatre¬in addition to many published non-fiction books and articles. Each of his unpublished works though, exposes the soul of an artist discovering his love for a new and wondrous city he came to call home, and living in a place isolating him with culture and language barriers seemingly impenetrable at times. By the end of these seven years Cummins had gone from an obscure stage manager, technical director, actor, and writer from the Concordia University College of Alberta to the winner of the 2009 BookTelevision award for the best Canadian writer under the age of 30, having written books published on major publishers, and ghostwritten dozens more. It is, however, these most sensitive, until now unpublished works that express the things hidden from his other works-the abstract sublimations of an Anglophone living isolated in a foreign place. From GuidingHand_777, written in his first years in Montreal and inspired fake news culture, to A Temple for Oysters and Ferns, written for the 2009 Canadian 3-Day Novel Contest, to The Sublime, his most recent abstract dramatic work, these pieces exhibit the private work of one of Canada's brightest new writers. Cummins currently resides in Ottawa, Ontario, serving as Chief Operating Officer of the Internet company WikiExperts.us and President of In Fusion Productions.
