ABOUT ME

Joshua was raised on the southern coast of Mississippi. I learned to love reading at an early age and writing seemed the next natural step. In fourth grade, I began bringing my stories on the school bus and reading the "next chapter" aloud each morning. After elementary I became the editor of his high school newspaper, contributing art and short stories.

I continued in this direction while attending The Mississippi School for Math and Science, taking every available Creative Writing class and submitting stories and poetry to magazines across the country. Mr. Red was published in Southern Voices Magazine in 1994. During this time he also studied Artificial Intelligence algorithms at Mississippi State University under the direction of Dr. Lois Boggess. Joshua went on to college where he received a degree in Graphic Design. He won an Addy Award for his Magazine Cover: Militant Design.

I went back to school, [again], to study Computer Science at the University of Southern Mississippi and I still works in Software Engineering, now living in Pensacola, FL along with his remarkable wife and two beautiful girls.
