About Joe

Traded for opium to the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia by his thrill-seeking parents at the tender age of 4, Joe eventually was adopted by a group of Turkic nomads where he spent his childhood living in a yurt, learning to smuggle khat. It was during one of his mule runs that he discovered the glitz of sunny Los Angeles - modern conveniences such as internet pornography and Craigslist drug dealers have lured many a baby-sold-for-drugs-traded-to-farmers-seeking-to-reclaim-his-roots-types... as well as Midwesterners. Joe presently lives in an abandoned well with a 3-legged talking rat named Sparkles. He lives to write and he writes to forget his sordid, sordid past. He thrives mostly on a diet of lichen and paint chips and travels only by dog-sled.
