James A. Truett, author of the bestselling seven-volume Mystical Moods of Ireland series of photo essays, is a former Associated Press journalist whose work has appeared in most major newspapers and many websites around the world.
He has survived a shooting (his camera took the bullet!), a raging forest wildfire, and Los Angeles traffic during his journeys as a sailor, private pilot and adventurer, travelling extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, Ireland and Scotland.
A second-generation Irish immigrant born in Alaska, he retraced the path of his grandmother and settled near the family farm in County Clare more than a decade ago, immersing himself in the inspiring and soul-stirring natural beauty of Ireland.
When not exploring the Irish countryside, he enjoys cooking and introducing his Irish family to international cuisine during family lunches. All have survived so far.
