Joe loves teaching, reading, writing, fitness, and traveling. He's been a full-time educator since 2001. A decade of that was spent teaching high school English, and now he's a college professor of communication.
Of course he loves books, so much that as a child, he'd fake sick so that he could stay up all night to finish whatever he was reading. He loves writing all sorts of stories, from horror to coming-of-age, from poetry to novels. On a perfect day, he spends a couple of hours writing and a couple of hours outdoors biking or hiking.
He wishes he could travel more and still has that dream of seeing the entire world. He's been to Japan twice, once for a college study abroad semester, and he constantly dreams of exploring new worlds.
That's another reason why he writes: the worlds he wants to see come alive in his imagination and on paper.
He also runs a martial arts program at his college and has earned a 4th degree black belt in karate. He's perfected a karate move that destroys writer's block.
RABBIT IN RED is his first published novel.
