Joe Hart grew up on a lonely 91 acres of farmland in northern Minnesota and without many playmates or company, began writing when he was 9. His first literary love was Stephen King (and still is) but he has expanded his scope to other influential authors. He published his first poems at age 17 and his first collection of short horror stories at 29. He is currently working on a novel. He lives with his wife and two children in northern Minnesota. Joe loves hearing from readers, feel free to email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
