Well, my name is Joel, and I'm a 22-year-old writer/illustrator person. I've been published in various bits and bobs (a couple of short stories for local newspapers and magazines) and am a regular contributor to my student Union magazine; I write the reviews & (spoof) horoscopes. My real passion is creative writing; I'm an enormous fan of horror (particularly Jack Ketchum & James Herbert) and hope to be a proper horror novelist one day. So, um, yeah. Hello there.
