About Author Joe Quackenboss

A Life in Words

Joe is from La Crosse,WI, where he lives with his amazing and inspirational daughter, Anna. When not writing, he works for the Veteran's Administration helping to ensure our nation's heroes get the healthcare they deserve. He also loves the outdoors; including hiking, fishing, and camping.


He loves to read just about anything he can get his hands on. His normal reading routine is with audio books, as it allows him to read and work at the same time.


Joe is a Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom with the US Army. He spent time traveling the Middle East and is of Lebanese and Syrian descent. He loves to tell stories, be it verbally or written. But, after his time in Iraq, the writing truly became a therapeutic method to deal with PTSD.


Some of his favorite things to write are in the High Fantasy realm. Lately, he has found himself working with Sci-fi and romance stories. For Joe, not writing and telling his stories was never really an option.
