About James Remmer

James Remmer pictured with his debut novel Out of Mecklenburg: The Unwilling Spy.

Hello, I’m James. Thank you for visiting my website.

I spent most of my life working in the investigative field of the security and intelligence community, and now live a quieter – but not too quiet – life in West Sussex. I have a keen interest in history and my writing heroes are Frederick Forsyth and John le CarrĂ©.

How did I become a writer? It’s quite simple, really. A few years ago I was in an airport trying to find a good story to read on my long-haul flight. I’d read all of the Forsyths, le CarrĂ©s and MacCleans the WH Smiths had in stock, and the others just didn’t grab my attention.

I thought to myself: why not write the story you want to read? So I did! And then I wrote another. I can only hope that you enjoy reading my spy novels as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.
