Joe Orozco


I was born in Nicaragua, grew up in Texas, and currently live on the East Coast. By day, I proudly serve the United States in the best way I am able. By night, I make a valiant attempt at writing material you will consider worthy of reading.

Outside of the freelance copywriting, my goal is to publish young adult fiction. I lean toward classic horror in the vein of early Stephen King. My other literary influences include: Ania Ahlborn, V.C. Andrews, David Baldacci, John Grisham, and J.K. Rowling, to name a few.

An author’s books should be half the dialogue. I was always wildly curious to learn more about the people behind the stories. To that end, I am working on building a website that tries to engage my target audience on issues of relevance outside of my stories. I want to have a conversation about money, college, careers, and anything else that might weigh on the minds of my young readers, and anyone else who happens to benefit from the discussion. Mind you, I don’t have all the answers, but there is a wealth of information I wish someone had passed down to me when I was on my way to meeting the real world.
