Joe Zito

Biography

I began 'reading' when I was 32. I compare my 'later in life hobby' to not liking a certain type of food when you were a kid, but then as an adult you suddenly realize it's not so bad and you love it. I started writing in 2011. Living in Indiana, I find its scenery influential in what I write about; old barns, flat open farm land, old country dirt roads, trees, and all the hundreds of cornfields. I love that kind of stuff and I find there is a certain kind of gothic like quality about Indiana. Movies, art and music also play a part in my writing. Horror and heavy metal obviously are an influence but I find 70's exploitation and B horror films, 70's culture and classic rock, weird and strange art, artsy films to be inspiring as well. My stories are meant to be read and enjoyed. That's why everything I put on here will be for free.To me its about art and storytelling and making the reader 'feel' something; not about making money.
The point of doing it (other than I just like to write weird and creepy stuff) is to entertain the reader and hopefully ruin their day because they read something horrific in one of my stories.
