James M. Bailey is an American author and a TV actor. James Bailey is listed as James Michael Bailey on his acting credits.
Bailey was born in Arkansas City, Kansas. In the early 1980s he went to Hollywood seeking an acting career. Not long after his arrival in Hollywood, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) began to manifest along with severe depression and anxiety. Bailey suffered for many years before finally seeking psychiatric treatment for his emotional problems. He spent almost three months in an American clinic that specialized in OCD before his complex interactions with other patients led to him to be discharged.
The good news was Bailey had overcome most of his OCD before being forced out. He later drew on his experiences there and wrote the book “Man Interrupted”, which was released in the United Kingdom and Europe and distributed in USA in April 2008. The book has been reviewed favourably in various fora.
He now lives in Louisiana and California where he continues to write and act.
