Joel is a writer, proofreader, ex-teacher and part-time human from the UK. He is constantly planning stories, novels and screenplays, a very small number of which actually get written. His genres of choice are horror and sci-fi, although the odd bit of sentiment does manage to sneak in between the freakishness and disturbing twists.

To date, Joel’s stories have found their way into anthologies such as the Dark Drabbles series (Black Hare press), Objection to Perfection (The Gentleman Press) and Sirens at Midnight (NBH Publishing), as well as featured on sites including EveryDayFiction.com and CreepyPasta.com.
