A West Point grad and former Army Ranger hailing from rural New England (the town of Acushnet, MA), MacGhil spent the good majority of his adult life in the southern US resulting from his time in the Army and ensuing misadventures in corporate America. After returning to Massachusetts for a five year stint, he again retreated to warmer climates and now resides in Tallahassee, Florida with his beautiful wife, two amazing kiddos, and a trio of slothful canines.

AuthorPicSome several years ago MacGhil became utterly fascinated with the apocryphal Book of Enoch and the concept of fallen angels breeding with human women thus conceiving a hybrid race of giant beasties that ravaged the Earth. Not exactly sure why such a concept fascinated MacGhil but to each his own. At any rate, after exhausting all the sci-fi/urban fantasy novels he read like a crack addict looking for his next fix – MacGhil took pen to paper and began to construct the universe of The Guild of Deacons where giants are more than a mere bean stalk climbing myth, semi-divine super soldiers wield the biblical power of God’s wrath like a mystical machine gun, and a secret society of rogue angels (and other assorted miscreants) have been lurking in the shadows, since the beginning of time, twisting the genetic make-up of the human race.

So, who is James MacGhil? He’s a sci-fi enthusiast who works by day and composes outlandish acts of fiction by night. A part-time, vigilante author who has a story to tell and a give’em hell attitude. A guy with a low budget and great expectations. Or more than likely – Just a dude with a rather strange affinity for giant beasties and an unyielding drive to write about them getting their asses kicked. Again, to each his own… How about them Red Sox?
