My name is Joe and I am a writer living and working in France. I have many passions but am driven to write. It is my access to the unlimited and without it I become unhealthy and moody – just ask my wife and son. (Sorry guys.) I write mainly first-person narratives from unique view points and often in the present tense.
If you want to read about my publishing history, click here. It’s written in third-person, as if I got a pro to do it, but we all know it was me. Suffice to say I’ve had three books published and am a (semi)professional writer. That in itself is a story. Just ask my wife and son. And the cat. And the dent in the fridge at fist height.
It has been an interesting journey getting where I am and I have not quite got there yet. Perhaps I am a journeyman who knows he knows a thing or two. Certainly not all, and my quest continues to write great novels that are accessible to all. In other words a goddamn bestseller without compromising what I do. That’s the journey I’m still on and maybe you’ll join me for part of it – and that is primarily what this website is for. Feel free to get in touch – take a look at my contact page to find out how. Or indeed why you might want to.
