About Josh Karaczewski

Josh lives in the San Francisco Bay Area (which is a catch-all meaning that he doesn't live in any of the cool Bay Area cities), and studied at Westmont College in Santa Barbara (though his degree is not in English).

Josh is a husband (rapturously happy), father (blissfully proud), and teacher (public high school - I know, ouch).

Josh enjoys reading (primarily fiction), writing (obviously), video games (especially shooters and platformers), art (creation and appreciation), film (just appreciation), and travel (9 out of 10 times this means Disneyland).

On his writing, Josh writes literary fiction that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Review by: Rachel Eliason on July 02, 2012 :
My Governor's House & other stories is an interesting collection of tales from Josh Karaczewaski. I particularly like My Governor's House, a story about a warrior coming home after a long time on the road and re-meeting his wife again. "Black Fang" is about a couple of young boys that capture an earwig and brings to mind childhood again.

The stories were interesting and the author does a good job of setting the scene and making the characters believable. He needs to work on his sentence structure. They are often complex and I had to read several some sentences several times before I could grasp them. If the read were smoother the collection would get another star at least. The collection is definitely worth 1.99.
