Joe Hadsall is a writer, reporter and magician. He has worked in print journalism for most of his life. He has written for magazines, newspapers and on the Internet. He is currently the features editor for The Joplin Globe. He lives in Joplin with his family, and hopes to become successful enough to afford a vacation home, so he can update these “about the author” paragraphs to say something snooty such as, “He splits his time between Mexico Beach, Fla., and Tiburon, Calif.” Hadsall also spends a lot of time geeking out about video games, music, writing, movies, magic and playing cards.
