When Joe Vasicek was eight years old, he saw Star Wars IV: A New Hope and read Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time. He's been making up stories about other worlds ever since. On this world, he's traveled to the Colorado Rockies, the Syrian Desert, the vineyards of Imereti, the shores of the Mediterranean, and the gilded domes of the Holy Land, all of which have influenced his books.
He graduated in 2010 from Brigham Young University with degrees in Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies & Arabic, and has since worked in a candy factory, a costume warehouse, a Washington D.C. think tank, and a village school in the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains. He has published over a dozen novels and novellas, but he hopes that that number will eventually grow to exceed one hundred. In the meantime, no matter what he does or where he travels, he's always writing.
