Author Bio for Hendryx, James B.
James Hendryx (1880-1963) was an American author of western fiction. Born in Minnesota, he established his reputation as a writer early in his life. He worked as a journalist in Ohio for the Cincinnati Enquirer. In 1915 he began writing novels and over the course of the next 50 years he completed over 40 books and many short stories. All of his work was in the western genre. While there were many authors competing in this field, he established himself in the sub-genre of fictionalizing the Canadian West. He portrayed Canada as a relatively lawful and orderly society with reliable police and civilized courts. He developed several series including Corporal Downey of the North West Mounted Police, Connie Morgan, a children's book series and the Halfaday Creek Series. (Twentieth Century Western Writers)
