Beneath the Trap Door

the not-so-secret journal of writer joel arnold

Joel Arnold
30 September 1968

Okay, I now live in Savage, MN with my wife, Melissa, and kids Paige and Zachary, and our Bichon-Poodle mix, Sophie.

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.
