Welcome to my page, thanks for stopping by. Consider this a site a half-finished construction project on hold while we take care of other things. In the world of COVID, finishing the website is non-essential work.
I am interested in the fantasy genre, and want to explore themes, inspiration and motivations of past works here. Most of my writing here is with the goal of keeping myself getting words written. I also occasionally talk about my life as a new parent and the writing process as I go through it for the first time. I hope you find something interesting here!
Well, that was quite in crazy year, huh? Despite staying home for 11 of the 12 months this year, my reading productivity took a large dip compared to 2019.

Hi, my name is Josh Larkin and I am working towards becoming a published author. In one sense, I am already published. I’ve published research in Neuroscience and Pharmacology Journals, but one of my goals since I was little was to publish a fantasy story. I’ve been writing since I was in 7th grade, and I hope it’s only gotten better.
Now, I have completed two different first drafts and am working slowly towards getting them in a fashion that is publishable.
Besides writing and reading fantasy, I love hiking with my wife and dog. I enjoy video games, Seattle sports and craft beer as well!
