Background Information

The son of two elementary school librarians, Joel Arnold grew up surrounded by books. The writing bug bit him early when he won a writing contest in his second grade class. His prize was a trip to the local A&W with his teacher.

Since then, his writing has appeared in dozens of publications, ranging from Weird Tales and Chizine to American Road Magazine and Cat Fancy. His collection Bedtime Stories for the Apocalypse was released in 2009 from Sam's Dot Publishing.

In 2010, Arnold won a Minnesota Artists Initiative Grant, as well as a Gulliver Travel Research Grant. He also entered the ebook market with a number of his collections and novels, including Death Rhythm,  Northwoods Deep, Bait and Other StoriesBedtime Stories for the Apocalypse, Fetal Position and Other Stories and his YA novels, Snow Burn and Ox Cart Angel, which won the Midwest Book Award for Best YA Novel of 2011.

Many of his stories can be heard in podcast form at Pseudopod.
