Joe Darris lives in Austin Texas with his wife, two cats, a dog, eight chickens, a snake, and a handful of hermit crabs. You can find him competing in beard contests, pilfering the farmer's market or wrapped up in a good piece of science fiction. Joe loves Sasquatch and wrote his first novel so he and the big guy can be friends one day.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love sharing worlds that only existed in my head. It's wonderful to think that we live in a limitless universe and that there's people brave enough to share what goes on behind their eyeballs. I want to make my contribution to the great brain of the world.
What are you working on next?
Right now I'm obsessed with twine games. I'm working on one that is meant to be played concurently with the second Wild Lands novel. It'll give perspectives and insights into clans and characters that I didn't have time for in the book. I hope to release the game within a month and the second novel sometime this summer.

But her hands aren’t what they used to be; she needs an apprentice, and only the best will do. Three bakers have been selected to participate in the bake-off of their lives… literally.
