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.

Visitors to his blog will find coupon codes, as well as extended book reviews, news, and other information useless
