With almost a thousand positive reviews and several #1 best sellers in their category, Joseph Duncan is one of the most highly acclaimed indie authors on Amazon.com. Born and raised in Southern Illinois, Joseph worked as a landscaper, a comic book artist and owned his own business for ten years before trying his hand at writing. His first novel, The Oldest Living Vampire Tells All, was a surprising hit, and allowed Joseph to become a full time author. He has since produced 13 more novels and several short stories, many of which regularly inhabit the best seller charts on Amazon.com. Joseph was offered a publishing contract but turned it down, preferring instead to work independently. His horror and fantasy novels have been favorably compared to the fiction of genre masters like Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Anne Rice, and are often praised for their lush descriptions, interesting wordplay and originality. Though some readers have found his works challenging due to their subversive content and explicit violence and sexuality, Joseph has been a perennial best seller since his debut in 2010.
