About the Author
Hometown: Bethlehem, PA

James E. Abel calls three areas home: New England—where he spent his “wonder years” and attended Norwood High School; Bethlehem, Pennsylvania—where he met his loving wife Barbara, attended Lehigh University, raised three children, and pursued a career as a Finance executive; and The Low Country—from Georgia through South Carolina where he and his family spend as much time as possible.

The rich heritage and natural beauty of Savannah Georgia and neighboring Tybee Island led Mr. Abel to choose the area as the setting for Side(H)harm.  His concerns over the opioid epidemic and the bitter political divisiveness afflicting this country provided Mr. Abel with his purpose in writing this novel. His belief in family, tolerance and the healing power of art provided him with his inspiration.     

Side(H)arm is Mr. Abel’s first novel, and its genesis was a short film that was written by him and filmed on Tybee Island. His hope is that the Novel will now serve as the basis for a feature length film of the same name. He currently plans to direct all proceeds from the sale of this novel toward the making of the film and he encourages anyone who enjoys the novel to share that fact with their friends on Facebook.  Mr. Abel hopes to post progress toward the film on twitter so please feel free to follow him on Twitter, @jameseabel.
