Joshua J. Piedra has been a creative writer for over 20 years. In the past, He has been both a competitive writer and a casual writer. He has taken the step forward to becoming a self-published author that writes for the teen to young adult age group. Most of his works are based on his love for anime and manga. Writing isn’t his only love as he is an avid gamer with a Bachelor of Arts in Game Design.
I’m Joshua J. Piedra I am a self-published light novel author for Final Hope and A.R. Dragonfly; however, I am more than just someone who puts words to a page to construct worlds, stories, and characters.
I have always enjoyed writing. I’ve been writing for well over 20 years and have created numerous short stories, characters, and the like. Despite this, I am a geek through and through. I grew up as a geek, am still a geek today, and will probably depart this mortal plane as one.
With that being said, I enjoy a lot of geeky things such as gaming, anime, and manga. In fact, I love gaming so much that I went to college and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Game Design with the hopes and aspirations to become a Producer in the game industry. That didn’t exactly pan out the way I had hoped but I did manage to land a job as a Graphic Designer… just not in the game industry. Horseshoes and hand grenades as they say.
When I’m not making stuff look good for the company I work for, I work as a Managing Editor of Anime and Manga for a geek culture website known as The Outerhaven. There, I do anime/manga reviews, news posts, as well as interviews for potential new site members and all that fun manager-type stuff. The whole writing light novels aspect falls into my spare time which, thanks to my magical time management skills, is more abundant than you’d think.
That’s me in a nutshell. If you were hoping for more personal information such as my social security number, bank account info, or my routine schedule with a list of my greatest fears written on the back, then I’m sorry to disappoint… or maybe thankful that I’ve disappointed you.
