Visiting Faculty


Joe is the author of several chapter books series, to include Night Frights, Junior Monster Scouts, and Creature Campers, as well as the Peanut Butter & Brains picture book series. 

The School Library Journal gave The Haunted Mustache (book 1 in the Night Frights series) a starred review, calling it “a hair-raising paranormal mystery for middle grade readers that won’t disappoint. A must-have title for elementary or middle schools where supernatural and scary books circulate well.” Kirkus called it “a lighthearted spook with a heaping side of silliness- and hair.”

In addition to the University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe, he is an associate professor of English at Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College.
