Josh Langston


Josh Langston writes books which have amused, angered, enlightened and entertained many readers. He regularly mines history for background that's little known but reliably fascinating. His plots are complex, interconnected and layered with humor and suspense; his characters are rarely predictable, and even his bad guys tend to be both engaging and diabolical.

Langston's readers are rarely satisfied with just one of his books, whether it's part of a series or a stand-alone. He's proud to let his southern roots show in his characters and his choice of settings.

His two most recent novel releases are: OH, BITS!, a paranormal mystery romance set in Atlanta during World War II and THE 12,000-YEAR-OLD WHISPER which features a pair of intertwined love stories which occur 12,000 years apart.

When he's not working on a new novel, Langston is most likely editing, teaching, blogging, or helping his wonderful wife watch their amazing grandkids. He’s even been known to goof off from time to time.

    I have to hand it to Kerry Bunn, he's done a great job of making this simple. I learned a lot, and I'm grateful. Sadly, though, no matter how hard I tried or how carefully I followed his instructions, I couldn't get my Open Office versions of Word to upload correctly. I got close--very close--but not close enough. When I figured I couldn't stand any more frustration, I broke down and bought a copy of Word. *That* fixed the problem (and much of what I leared from Bunn's work carried over. I still don't like MicroSoft, and having to buy their software feels like surrender, but my peace of mind is worth something, too.
