Joseph’s love for fantasy and fiction goes well back to his youth when he cut his teeth on authors like Ray Bradbury, Jules Verne, and George Orwell. Television also influenced his writing as he became immersed in the original Twilight Zone, Outer Limits and his favorite, the original Star Trek starring William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.

In later years, Joseph had the privilege of pitching stories to Paramount Studios for later incarnations of the Trek saga (ST: Voyager and ST: Enterprise) and had a story sale in principle until low ratings forced the network to cut two episodes from the fifth and final series’ production schedule. Joseph’s short story, “Cheating Destiny” was a finalist selection for Pocket Books’ Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Volume Ten) in 2007.

Today, Joseph is a fourth year Assistant Professor of Bilingual Education at Eastern New Mexico University. Regardless of his day job responsibilities, he has managed to publish twenty-three short stories and poems in such publications as Clockwise Cat, Alienskin Magazine, The Battered Suitcase, Lorelei Signal, and now, Bewildering Stories.
