Sir Joshua grew up in the beautiful world of Cleveland (Once home of the Great Millionaire’s Row), a place where almost any good thing that one wants, one can get…if one is determined and willing to ask for it until the person that has it gets annoyed and hands it over, hahaha.
Growing up on Goosebumps books, Fear Street books and Anime, reading the Beast from the East in a tent he pitched up in his room, a tent he earned from selling products from the “Olympia Sales company” as a child, he developed his mind by feeding his hunger for both knowledge and entertainment. Not having the latest technological gaming systems or a cell phone to call his friends (did he even have friends? Hahaha, joking), he read.
As he grew up, he acted in a Myriad of plays with Rainey Institute and later went on to become one of the two Drama teachers there. He has written many publications from plays to commercials to books, his first copy written book being a “short novella” called “The Misty Mountain: The Myth of Jog Tog Nog Bog”, a story about an ancient people whose tribe was decimated by the falsehoods of an insidious outsider.
He later went on to direct his plays “Austin Flowers Presents: Molden Finger” and “ Bruce Beatboy’s: Episode One: Who’s the Master?! Uis!”
His most recent endeavor is a Novella Series called “Xanadu’s Novella Series”, where a question, a thought or even an impulse, gives rise to an entire book. From thoughts streaming asking questions like “What if aliens created Humanity” to “What if companies created things that made people sick, then charged them for the cure?!”. He has a very creative team backing him and his company, Fan Club Josh Inc.
In 2008 he went on to start his own multimedia publishing company called “Fan Club Josh Inc.”, a company dedicated to “Making the world groovier, better, happier, one smile at a time”. So join us please, won’t you?
We hope you enjoy all of the beautiful publications afforded by Fan Club Josh Inc, read on and be groovy.
Mum, my Mum is a great author and Psychologist. She raised me in an environment where it was ok to be myself. She supported me and encouraged me on whatever path I wanted, surrounding me with books, movies and motivational material that everyday could tell me, it is ok to be me.
R.L. Stine!!!! When I was younger, I would devour R.L. Stine books. When I got money, some way, somehow, as kids manage to do, whether it’s our third birthday that year (just joking) or we freeze outside shoveling our elderly neighbors sidewalk, or Christmas comes and our rich relative sends us some “pocket change”, I would get R.L. Stine Goosebumps books, a bag of candy and sit down for 2-4 hours, devouring the entire thing. Looking back, I’m a bit amazed at how a single book, a series could keep and hold my attention so strongly.
The Cobra Event (Richard Preston, 1998), this was a somewhat “possible” science fiction book that was so real in its literature and description that you may find yourself subconsciously acting like one of the characters or conditions in the book. A truly “Must read”, given to me by a doctor, I believe, whilst I was still in High school.
Stephen King! Come on, everyone in America, even the world, has probably been touched by this magnanimous author or knows someone who has. His frightening books gave one’s mind thrilling images to ponder over, fear and masochistically enjoy.
Anime! Anime is the freedom of art. The beauty of melded mind and paint. Based in Japan, Anime has run all over the world, almost dominating the area of Children’s television, hence Pokémon, Naruto, Dragon Ball Z ring any bells? Anime is what says “Be who you are and be it to the best of your abilities! And beyond!”
