Through such simple questions as, "What if we lived in a world where our beliefs were real, tangible, and actualizable?", Joe explores the possible through thought, fantasy, wit, and character.
Including influences such as Shunryu Suzuki, Tolkien, Krishnamurti, Iain M. Banks, Laozi, Stephen R. Donaldson, Philip Kapleau, Raymond E. Feist, Edward O. Wilson, Dan Simmons, and David Bohm, Joe creates existential fantasy filled with rich worlds, concepts, stories, and ideas.
Joe holds an advanced degree in environmental management from Duke University where he also studied religion with a focus on meditative, experiential, and transformative traditions.
When not at play with his family, he enjoys reading, writing, and relaxation. When he can, Joe also practices various martial traditions in which he has attained the victim level of proficiency.
In addition to the Chronicles of the Fists trilogy, Joe is also the author of Nemesis - A Good Guide for Bad Guys, Everygnome's Guide to Paratechnology, and Mulogo's Treatise on Wizardry. He is also working on something else but really cannot say more on the matter at present.
