Joseph Heck

Biography

Writing and creating stories has always been a favorite activity of mine. The world of Amaco Loch was created over thirty years ago, as I told stories to my three children. As my children grew, so did the stories. SHIAM Conspiracy is the first book of the Amaco Loch series. I am currently working on my second novel, Project Catalyst.

I have always been an avid reader since childhood. Amateur photography, long walks with my dogs, football, and working on my writing are the things that make up my weekends and late evenings.

Born in Freeport Ill, I spent time traveling until finally making my home in Canada.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I can't remember not writing. Many of my early stories were of the "cops and robbers" variety, which later turned into mystery. In high school I was also into writing James Bond flavored spy adventures.
What's the story behind your latest book?
SHIAM Conspiracy is the natural evolution of a world I'd created years ago. The planet Amaco Loch started out as the stage for sword and sorcery fantasy. In fact, it's history began as stories I told my kids when they were young. As time went on, the stories became more involved and I began putting them on paper. They were mostly loosely connected short stories.

One day, a question came to mind. What happens when Amaco Loch enters the modern age? SHIAM Conspiracy is the answer to that question and the current book I'm working on, Project Catalyst, is a continuation of that answer.
