So, it's been a difficult (if not seemingly impossible) journey to this place in time. Anyone who tells you to quit pursuing your dream, tell them about me because I'm living proof that they're wrong. I've spent the better part of ten years and amassed 350 rejection letters while trying to get published. Now after all this time, frustration, and doubt, I can say without hesitation, I am published through Post Hill Press, distributed through Simon & Schuster, December 2017. Not only that, if you work hard enough, remain humble, and keep believing, dreams still come true. Even in the darkest of days, you will see the light shine on all of your effort.
"Humans are easy to read, because what they're not saying speaks volumes."--Joel T. McGrath
Joel T. McGrath is an author who likes penning stories, both long and short, which can be a little quirky, funny, or ironic. He is a proud member of the New Hampshire Writers’ Project. Joel resides in New Hampshire with his wife, Jessica, their two cats, Cookie and Mittens, and their two gerbils, Chip and Digger.
He graduated from Virginia Western in 2003 and always looks forward to whatever life throws his way. Joel began writing because he had stories to tell which kindle and entice the reader's imagination.
Joel is a four-time top 20% choice for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award with four different manuscripts. He has sold foreign rights to his first novel through a literary agent in Turkey to Pegasus, and is currently working with a Disney illustrator on a graphic novel he hopes to release in 2017.
Joel loves to entertain others by using his creativity to spin tales that allow the reader to escape from the real world, if only for a few moments.
