Joe Hill Biography
Birthday: June 4, 1972 (Gemini)
Born In: Bangor, Maine, United States
Joe Hill is a well-known American author, who mostly writes horror, super natural, dark fantasy, and science fiction. Born as Joseph Hillström King into a family of celebrated authors, he grew up watching his parents working quietly in their respective offices. Their dinner table conversations were also dominated by talks of novels and publishing. Living in such an environment, it was natural that he would also grow an interest in writing, devoting at least two hours to the task each day since the age of eleven. He started writing professionally at the age of twenty-four, but he soon realized that he should take a pen name if he wanted to succeed on his own without any reference to his celebrated father. Writing under the pen name of Joe Hill, he had his first book, a collection of short stories, published at the age of thirty-three and at thirty-five, his first novel, ‘Heart-Shaped Box’. Today, he is an established writer with a huge fan base and numerous awards to his credit.
