James' trifecta of debut books--two non-fiction, one techno-thriller novel--published in 2016 all share one common trait: A Passion for Research. The foundation of any good story begins with detail of an era, scent of a locale, and layers of a person.
Grundvig has researched, written and published dozens of articles, ranging from energy and sustainability, to terrorism, art crime, and technology, in the Huffington Post, Epoch Times, Financial Times Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) magazine, Law.com (James is not a lawyer), Football.com, among other media outlets.
James's favorite subject, Eschatology (n)--'the part of theology concerned with death, judgment, and the final destiny of the soul and of humankind'--as applied to failure of systems and decline of cultures, with recent examples in the BP Oil Spill, terrorism, and the creation of a bogeyman in the Zika virus by U.S. healthcare agencies to foment fear for money.
His blog ZikaGreen.com will cover all subjects Zika with Scare Tactics to Green with Greed.
