James Heneghan grew up in Liverpool, England and in Ireland. He worked as a policeman in Liverpool before moving to Vancouver.
At first, Heneghan was a fingerprint specialist for the Vancouver Police. After twelve years, he made a career change, becoming a high school English teacher in Burnaby.
With fellow teacher Bruce McBay, he wrote stories for reluctant readers. They have now collaborated on four books, two of which were published under the pen name B.J. Bond.
Heneghan is now a full-time writer. He has four children and two grandchildren.
