WELCOME TO

MY WORLD

 

Joseph A Pasquale ​is an American author who writes in a variety of literary genres, including poetry, memoir, and literary fiction.

 

He studied the art of writing literary fiction under bestselling-author, Ken Eulo and was also a member of the NY Acting Ensemble in Los Angeles. He has ghostwritten two children’s books and worked as a technical writer for a technology firm.

He was born in Worcester, Massachusetts and graduated from Worcester State University. From there he embarked on a decade-long journey across America where he fictionized hundreds of characters involving his prodigious experiences throughout the country. What resulted was an autobiographical fiction series spanning seven novels titled “Love Junky.”

Along his journeys he’s assisted the Kerouac Project in Orlando and Orlando Museum of Art. He has landed publication in Wisconsin Review, Scientific American and Provo Canyon Review and read his poems in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Louisville, Vegas, New York City and Florida.

Pasquale loves animals and is completing an animal-inspired book series.

 

Over the past decade Pasquale has divided his time between Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Florida.
