Joseph Mulak was unleashed upon the world in Northern Ontario way back in the early '80s. Since then, the world hasn't fully recovered.
Joseph has been a horror fan since the age 12, when his mother bought him a copy of Stephen King's The Dead Zone, so we have her to blame. His first novel, written at the age of 13, was a direct ripoff of this book but he has since found his own voice. He says his greatest moment as a writer was giving his mother nightmares when she read the opening chapters of a novel he wrote at the age of 15.
Joseph's first published story was called As in Life, So in Death and since then his short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies such as Masters of Horror - The Anthology, Dark Things II, Death Be Not Proud, Christmas in Hell, and Dangers Untold, among others. He has also published a collection of short stories - Haunted Whispers, a novel - Burnt Ashes, and a novella - Little Angels. He also wrote a novel that his publisher markets as romance, but we don't talk about that.
His fiction has been described as "Impossible to put down," by readers who spilled glue on their hands and "Disturbing, twisted, and all kinds of messed up" by those who aren't criminally insane.
Joseph still resides in Northern Ontario, in the city of North Bay (though he hesitates to call it a city). He lives with his wife, Alicia, and five children.
He says he is currently working on several writing projects but we're pretty sure he sits around in his underwear all day playing video games.
