About James Edgar Skye

James Edgar Skye is a native of Salinas, California. On a dark and cold night in November 2007, his life changed with a diagnosis of Bipolar One. A journey with this mental illness (that includes social anxiety) heavily influences his writing. His love for writing and his experience with Bipolar one helped create the moniker and his brand “The Bipolar Writer.”

J.E. considers himself a young adult/adult fiction novelist but he also writes screenplays and non-fiction. He writes within the romance/drama, fantasy fiction, supernatural, and dark romanticism genres in his novels and screenplays. J.E. has written a screenplay entitled Memory of Shane and is working on a book of the same name.

J.E. graduated summa cum laude in 2018 from Southern New Hampshire University with a Bachelor's of Arts in Creative Writing and English (minoring in journalism, screenwriting, and political science). In 2018, James started down the path of completing his Master’s degree in the same area with the hope of completion in 2020.

In his spare time, when he is not writing fiction, J.E. likes writes small blog articles that chronicle his issues relating to his mental illness like anxiety, depression, insomnia, and suicide. He plans on writing a memoir on his experiences entitled The Bipolar Writer, the first draft was finished in Fall of 2018, with the hope of completion for publication in 2019.

J.E. is a coffee addict and spends most of his time in coffee shops writing. He also loves Japanese culture including anime, foods like sushi/sashimi, and he loves Korean pop. In his spare time, he plays role-playing video games to cope with his depression. Music is a significant part of how J.E. deals with depression and anxiety. In 2018, J.E. is learning to speak Korean. He also loves to watch sports and actively roots for the Dodgers, Broncos, Lakers, and Alabama football.
