Hi! I am Joe, an author who has recently made this my full-time career. As an addiction fiction writer, I want to change the lives of others by telling stories of addiction. If my books can help one person recognize their issue, then I’ve made my impact.

My book is Losing Lee, a coming-of-age mystery about a 17-year-old boy who is aiming to find out what happened to his older brother, Lee, who passed away years earlier from mysterious circumstances.
