About the author: Playwright James Nevius — known to many on Maui as a musician and radio personality — started writing in middle school, alternating between fiction, poetry, and songwriting. His first play, a one-act spoof of everything from Sophocles to Harold Pinter to Arthur Miller, was performed in high school. In college, he combined his love of language and history, writing his undergraduate thesis at New York University on methods of teaching Shakespeare’s Hamlet. He also studied playwriting in New York with Jeffrey Stocker and Christopher Durang.

An avid historian, he is the author, along with his wife, Michelle, of numerous books about New York, including Inside the Apple: A Streetwise History of New York City (Simon & Schuster), now in its 11th printing. He writes frequently about urbanism and architecture for The New York Post and among other publications.

He is putting the finishing touches on a novel, Chasing Shadows, about stolen Old Master paintings and a time-traveling FBI agent.
