James R. Dennis  is a novelist, a poet, and a Domincan friar. Along with two friends,  he is a co-author of the Miles Arceneaux mystery series. He also writes and teaches on spiritual matters. (Some of the sermons and other spiritual writings are available here.)  In 2017, he was honored by the Texas Legislature for his contribution to Texas literature. He was born in West Texas, and lives in San Antonio with his two ill-behaved dogs.

His first poetry collection, Correspondence in D Minor, was released in August of 2016. It is a new collection of poems, many (although not all) of which are written as fictional letters to or from figures from literature, history and scripture. Many of the poems draw upon well established poetry forms. All copies of the limited first edition are numbered, signed and the cover is letter-pressed. The limited first edition is available at fine bookstores, and from Stephen F. Austin Press. (You can order the book from the Press here or by calling them at (936) 468-1078.)
