One of the recent reviews for Academic Curveball (Braxton Campus Mysteries Book 1)

Nothing like a good murder mystery, and the best ones are the ones that keep you guessing all the way till the end. In this deeply-layered whodunit, widower Kellan Ayrwick takes time off from his television job in Los Angeles to attend the retirement party of his father, who is stepping down as president of Braxton College. Amidst the usual family dysfunction, a woman whom Kellan was intending to discuss business with is found dead. Kellan, despite the warnings of the local sheriff, decides to make a few polite inquiries of the long list of suspects. This is my first time reading Cudney’s work, so I had no idea what to expect, but as I said, the twisty plot had me changing my mind about “ze killer” all the way to the end. Throw in some truly colorful supporting characters that inspire, annoy, and captivate our reluctant hero, and you have a recipe for a wonderful cozy mystery. (And if you like bombshells on the final page… yep, this book has one of those too. Curse you, Jay, for making me wait for Book Two.)

About James J. Cudney

James is my given name; most call me Jay. I grew up on Long Island and currently live in New York City, but I’ve traveled all across the US (and various parts of the world). After college, I spent 15 years working in technology and business operations in the sports, entertainment and media industries. Although I enjoyed my job, I left in 2016 to focus on my passion: telling stories and connecting people through words. My debut novel is ‘Watching Glass Shatter,’ a contemporary fiction family drama with elements of mystery, suspense, humor and romance. To see samples or receive news from my current and upcoming books, please subscribe with your email address at my website:

What do I do outside of writing: I’m an avid genealogist (discovered 2K family members going back about 250 years) and cook (I find it so hard to follow a recipe). I love to read; between Goodreads and my blog at, I have over 500 book reviews which will give you a full flavor for my voice and style. On my blog, I started the 365 Daily Challenge, where I post a word each day that has some meaning to me, then converse with everyone about life. There is humor, tears, love, friendship, advice and bloopers. Lots of bloopers where I poke fun at myself all the time. Even my dog has a weekly segment called “Ryder’s Rants” where he complains about me. All these things make up who I am; none of them are very fancy or magnanimous, but they are real and show how I live every day.

A bit of humor: Everything doubles as something else when you live in NYC. For me, it’s the dining room, my favorite space in the apartment, where more than just my cooking is on display! As I look out the windows onto a 12th floor terrace, various parts of nature (trees, bushes, flowers, bugs & animals) inspire me to write. Ryder, my 10-year old shiba inu, usually lays on my feet, growling when I shift positions too many times or when I forget to share my food! Although he’s only 20 pounds, he’s quite strong and pushy. But how else can you pen the best story possible without these things by your side?
