Role— Author of "Love Simulacra"
Listen to an audio sample from the soundtrack that accompanies Joe's story:
Past Achievements— Wrote and directed the short film, The Pact; was a contributing author to the Vampire: The Requiem supplement books, Immortal Sinners, Ancient Mysteries, and Ancient Bloodlines; and was a contributing writer to the MMORPG, EVE Online.
Future Achievements— Will write a 12-book series of supernatural thrillers: Book #1 tentatively titled Hide and Go Seek; will be Executive Producer of the 12 Symphony Zodiac Cycle; and will write and produce numerous television series and feature films.
Back Story— Joe is a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon International Fraternity, a veteran of the United States Air Force, and a former Hollywood gofer and schmoozer. Also a Desk Jockey and, now, Probation Officer.
Final Notes— Joe is all of (but not exclusively) the following things: a severely lapsed Catholic, a seriously disenfranchised democrat, a former republican, a philosophy major in college, an avid reader, a musicholic, a lover of police procedurals (CSI, NCIS) and legal thrillers (Boston Legal, though that isn't technically a thriller), plus a close observer of serial killers (having had two of the most notorious in recent U.S. history touch my life directly) and a people watcher (not quite to the level of voyeur—but how else am I going to write about the kinds of people I write about?). Truth is stranger than fiction in almost every case!
