My name is Joseph Vuono and I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a small town in Maryland and have since relocated to an even smaller town in Tennessee. My family and I currently reside in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains. In the 1990's I won a writing excellence award presented by the Baltimore Sun and Carroll County Arts Council. After a long hiatus I've returned to the keyboard and look forward to sharing my stories with the web community. I like to create works of fiction with an emphasis on action, horror and maybe a bit of romance. I hope you enjoy my works and welcome your comments and reviews.
