James Fitzpatrick was born in Co. Cork, southern Ireland, moving to Dublin at a young age. After living and writing in both Holland and Portugal, he returned to his native land in 2002, setting up a film industry business and record label. James started writing poetry in the 1990s and, in 2004, joined the Dublin Writers Association run by Irish poet Nessa O'Mahony, where he learned how to structure his writing. After the publication of his poem Early Incipient Gleam, he left the group to develop a new style. In 2011, James started working on an 'Epic' or 'Long' poem with a central heroic character. The poem Titanic, was written to commemorate the 100th Centenary of the ship’s sinking, and was also a breakdown of the creation of the Euro currency. The poem came with a third 'hidden' layer; the media driven war between Modern and Contemporary Art. This use of three layers is called 'Triplicism'. In 2012, James’ poem The Terracotta Girls was included in a poetry collection on women's rights by Austrian Penn. The author is currently developing another ‘Epic’ poem called The Great Elk. Aside from his writing and multiple business ventures, James is qualified to teach English and has taught for over two and a half years. He resides in Co. Dublin.
