Joseph D. Newcomer is an author of speculative and literary fiction and the Founder of DEAD STAR PRESS. He was born in the blue-collar, Northwest Pennsylvania city of Erie in 1980. Currently, he resides in the Arizona desert, where he continues to write his Thought & other Absurdities blog and follow-up novels to his debut, El Camino Blue, and his second novel, Diminishing Return.
Joseph spends his spare time Photoshopping his daughter, Ari, and his girlfriend, Andrea (the two greatest loves of his life) into art from comic books and curating Ari’s comic book collection. In the future, he hopes to be sucked into The Twilight Zone or an episode of Black Mirror, though he suspects that we already were.
