About this author

Joshua P. Simon is a Christian, husband, father, CPA, fantasy author, and heavy metal junkie. He currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia and hopes that one day he can leave the life of a CPA behind and devote that time to writing more of the ideas bouncing around his ADD-addled brain.

He has completed and published one epic fantasy series (The Blood and Tears Trilogy) and is now working on several new projects.

You can find out more about him at www.joshuapsimon.blogspot.com.
