Short biography
Unlike most authors, Joshua did not immerse himself into the world of books as a child. After finishing graduate school, he quickly made up for lost time by buying and devouring countless graphic novels. Remembering his love of the original Conan movies, he moved on to the fantasy genre with the compilations of Robert E. Howard. He was hooked.
Since then, he has moved on to other authors such as Glen Cook, Joe Abercrombie, George R.R. Martin, Steven Erikson, Paul Kearney, Steven Brust, Peter V. Brett, Patrick Rothfuss and many more.
Joshua was inspired to write and create his own fantasy world after reading Glen Cook’s Black Company series. Thanks to a vivid imagination, he soon found himself with more ideas than he knew what to do with. After some prompting by his wife, he decided to focus his efforts on stories in a series called Blood and Tears.
Due to uncertainty in the publishing industry these days, Joshua is pursuing self-publishing. Warleader, a prequel short story, and Rise and Fall, the first book, both in the Blood and Tears trilogy, are scheduled to be released by the end of 2011.
When not writing, Joshua lives a life devoted to God and spends time with his beautiful family. He is employed as an accountant.
