About the Author

Joe Bright spends far too much time probing the dark and macabre. It's an unhealthy obsession-or so his therapist claims. It started innocently when he was a child, with deviant drawings, and then moved into melancholy melodies as he learned the guitar and tried his hand at songwriting. As an adult, Joe worked as a technical writer and English professor. These careers led him down the grim path of story telling, starting first with poetry and short stories, and ultimately, introduced him to the dreaded novel.

Along the way, Joe left his home state of Wyoming, traveled the world, lived in Honolulu, San Francisco, and Berkeley, before settling in Los Angeles, where he drifted into hermitage as he became consumed by the dark arts of writing. Periodically, he allows himself to wonder out into the light and mingle with other members of his species.
