About this author

Josh Karaczewski has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area his whole life - save for a year studying architecture in Boston.

He majored in Art, taking English classes for fun.

He recently moved back to teaching High School English full time after a couple years substitute teaching, which is better on the bank account, but terrible for writing. He is also a partner in his family candy business, Chastity Chocolates (www.chastitychocolates.com), specializing in high quality small batch confections and baked goods.

He has a fabulous marriage that has produced three fabulous children.

He enjoys reading, writing, art, film, and video games.

There comes a time in every writer's life where he or she has the urge to find a creative way to describe their creative process. This should be avoided at all costs, for while this exercise is fun to think about and write, invariably the product will be pretentious as hell.Example: the following was originally planned as part of a series of blog swaps with author Nath Jones in early 2013.

"The magic of this book was less in the story itself than in the PAINFUL and beautiful nostalgia and pure insightfulness as to how it feels to be a child, and the elasticity of memory. I felt myself change back into the girl that was reading A Wrin..." Read more of this review »

Josh Karaczewski and 35 other people liked Mara's review of The Martian:
The Martian by Andy Weir
" Andy Weir (a bit of a self-publishing Cinderella, as I learned form Trudi's stellar review) has received a sufficient amount of well-deserved, gushing praise for The Martian that I don't feel terribly guilty for offering a montage of Archer gi..." Read more of this review »
