Joshua Carmichael (1988 – Present) was born in Baltimore, Maryland and grew up south of the city in Lothian, Maryland. After high School and a few years in college, he packed his car and moved to Louisiana to work on the Mississippi River. After two years working the Mississippi River he moved to New Jersey where he continued to work within the maritime industry on the Delaware River.
During this time he started writing, experimenting in numerous genres and writing over twenty short stories in a moleskin notebook that he keeps in his back pocket. In 2016 he decided to start self-publishing his stories in his spare time. The first being “The Pinks!: A Short Story”.
