10 Statements – James Schofield

I have worked in Europe and Asia for various organisations and now live in Munich, Germany. As well as writing material for magazines, educational publishers, websites and myself, I’m a qualified business coach, trainer and moderator.

I write short stories for various magazines including Business Spotlight, Spotlight (Germany) and Speak Up! (Italy). Some of these stories you can also listen to on my podcast ‘Behind the Bottom Line’ in which I read my magazine stories and explain something about their real life background:

I’m working on a thriller set in Munich, Zagreb, Venice and London.

I’m married and we have seven children, three dogs and a sinister black fish that lives in a small tank in our bathroom. It scares the shit out of me.
