James Porteous has worked in various media jobs over the past 30 years.

He began writing record and concert reviews for national magazines when he was 14 years old. He continues to write for various blogs and online publications.

From there he moved on to television, working as a digital librarian and archivist, first with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto and then Al Jazeera English in Washington, DC, and Doha, Qatar.

Having come of age during what the West calls ‘The Vietnam War,’ he could not help but notice that the American boys coming home in body bags were basically his age.

These early images have remained with him for his entire life.

He was also involved in the six-month build-up of TV equipment and crews assigned to Shock and Awe in the first Iraq War.

How else could the images be beamed around the world at the very moment they were taking place!

Porteous is an author, freelance writer, musician, songwriter, photographer, and anti-war and human rights activist.

His latest novel, Got a Revolution? serves as a reminder that, for decades, the governments in the Global North have offered their manufactured wars, corporate greed, poverty, and military spending as proof that humans are inherently evil. It is a profitable but deadly fiction.

His previous book, The Last Record Album, is a fictional biography based on stories and musicians he met while working in the music industry.
