Joshua Cochran

Author's Bio

Born in Tucson, Arizona, Mr. Cochran has lived multiple lives in a variety of locations. He currently calls New York City home, where he abides a life of quiet (thunderously quiet) mediocrity. His big thrills are fleeting times when he’s free to write, teaching an excellent class, moments with friends and enemies alike, and the distant hope of some form of earthly fulfillment.
