Beneath the Trap Door

the not-so-secret journal of writer joel arnold

Joel Arnold
30 September 1968
Raised by feral elementary school librarians in the wilds of Rochester, MN, Joel Arnold quickly rose to prominence as a certified bibliophile. Armed with only a pair of glasses and an acute sense of smell, he can detect the musty pheremones of a good book from over a mile away. Aside from that...

Okay, I now live in Savage, MN with my wife, Melissa, and kids Paige and Zachary, and our Bichon-Poodle mix, Sophie. My writing has appeared in over 5-dozen publications, including WEIRD TALES, AMERICAN ROAD MAGAZINE, and the mystery anthology RESORT TO MURDER. I recently received a Minnesota State Arts Board 2010 Author's Initiative Grant, and even more recently, the Speculative Literature Foundation's Gulliver Travel and Research grant.
