About the Author
My name is Joseph Wood. I grew up in Townsend, Massachusetts before moving to Tucson, Arizona where I currently live. I’ve always loved reading as well as sports. My favorite sport would have to be either Football (Go Patriots!) or Brazilian jiujitsu. My favorite book series has to be the Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson. I love watching shows like Friends, HIMYM, and Psych. I got into poetry when I was in 9th grade Spanish class, and I was bored. I’ve never been that great at learning Spanish, so I started writing poems. And here we are today. I’m so glad to be on this journey with you all and I can’t wait to see where it leads.
Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
The Dawn of Speech is a series of poems written in a way to tell the story of a young man trying to find purpose. He finds and loses love, goes through heartaches and pains, and finds himself again when all feels hopeless.
Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?
Anyone that has ever lost and loved someone deeply and wondered about their purpose will find a real connection to these poems. And anyone that just loves poetry.
Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?
I would have to go with the Stormlight Archive series by Brandon Sanderson. The world is just so beautifully constructed and the insightfulness into the characters’ minds is just amazing.
Qn 4: What guidance would you offer to someone new, or trying to enhance their writing?
You will get discouraged. Don’t let that stop you. Even when you don’t think you’re good enough yet, you have to keep going.
