Author James Tobin served in the United States Navy as a Hospital Corpsman, lived in Southern Europe, and has been a student of world culture for the past fifteen years. All of these interests and novel experiences inform the author’s literature, which may be described as living somewhere in the genre of the thriller, yet with a psycho-spiritual bent: It addresses the touchstones of meaning in our individual life experiences which are of cardinal importance to the “good life,” even as the bodies stack higher and higher, and the “bad guys” seem to keep managing to get away with it.

Author James Tobin invites you to take a deep trip into his strange and topsy-turvy and thrilling worlds; perhaps you would like to start with “Chemical Philosophy: A Novel of Discovery,” or delve into one of his short stories or novellas. Regardless, a thrilling time is sure to be had. You will meet lovable villains, hateful protagonists; all characters who will stay with you long after the final page is turned, and the cover closed.
