Get to know Josh...

Birthday? May 6

When did you start writing? I first remember writing when I was in the third grade, and my teacher praised a fantasy story that I wrote. Shortly thereafter, I declared to my mother that I was going to write a novel, and I'm still working on making that happen.

When and what and where did you first get published? At some point during elementary school, I published a poem in Clubhouse magazine, but never kept an issue of it, or even remember what year that was. My first sale was a short story in the September 2010 issue of Aoife's Kiss.

What themes do you like to write about? Identity and sense of self, told through unreliable or unusual narrators who may or may not be insane, and who may or may not even exist.

What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author?Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work?  Philip K. Dick's work (especially Autofac, The Electric Ant, A Scanner Darkly, and Lies, Inc.) and Alice in Wonderland are probably what I hold in my mind the most as templates — everyday people who are trying to use math, language, and logic to escape from a landscape that is melting around them.
