James A. Owen

James A. Owen

James A. Owen is an American comic book artist, publisher and writer.


Owen was best known in the 1990s for self-publishing the black-and-white fantasy series "Starchild" under his Coppervale Press imprint. After the turn of the century Owen reinvented himself as a novelist — creating a fantasy series titled "Mythworld" that met with much success in Germany — and magazine editor. In 2003 Coppervale Press relaunched two classic newsstand magazines, the fine arts-oriented "International Studio" and the fiction periodical "Argosy".

In 2006 Owen published "Here, There Be Dragons", the first book in "The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica" series [ [http://coppervale.livejournal.com/167080.html The Wonder Cabinet - How To Write A Series - Part Twelve ] ] . Filming rights were immediately bought by Warner Brothers, which contributed to the book's success. The second book, "The Search for the Red Dragon" was released in early 2008.

Owen currently lives in Silvertown, Arizona.
