Del James is a meat-eating, pro-choice, sober American. Depending on his mood he writes horror fiction, screenplays, and music.  As a lyricist, he has co-written songs with artists like Testament, Dizzy Reed, The Almighty, The Outpatience, and Guns N’ Roses, including two songs on GN’R’s grammy nominated Use Your Illusion album.  James has directed videos, produced music, was a Senior Editor for RIP Magazine, scouted talent for Geffen Records, and has written live television for the Ultimate Fighting Championship.  When not out pillaging the free world as the tour manager for Guns N' Roses, James can be found lurking in the shadows of Hollywood's seediest dive bars and rock clubs.
