More About the Author

Joe Cuhaj is originally from northern New Jersey. Growing up in the 60's/70's, Joe had a wide variety of interests including being an avid baseball fan, shortwave radio listener, Marx Brothers fan, and playing drums with his band, Quits, which still plays together today..more or less.

His writing throughout his high school years led to another favorite pasttime -rejection slip collecting. During his early years he amassed quite a collection.

Growing up near Bear Mountain/Harriman State Parks, it was a natural that Joe fell in love with hiking and backpacking as he hiked the many beautiful trails of the parks and sections of the Appalachian Trail. He also showed an continued his interest in writing, but his dream job was to become a radio announcer and follow in the footsteps of his idol, Jean Shepherd, would have to wait as Joe joined the US Navy as a radioman. It was here that he met his wife Maggie. The two married in 1980 and moved back to New Jersey where he finally began his radio career at WWUU (U107) in Long Branch, NJ, doing LATE night newscasts and announcing late harness racing results from Mammouth Park.

Maggie, tired of New Jersey snow and ice storms, pursuaded Joe to move to her hometown, Mobile, AL. A big career move for Joe - from outside the #1 radio market in the country to the 85th, but his radio career continued and flourished for many years as he worked for a number of stations including WUNI, Mel Tillis' WMML, WBCA, and 92Zew. During this time his daughter Kellie was born.

After years of getting raises in the form of t-shirts and coffee mugs, his family decided he needed to get a "real" job so he enrolled at the University of South Alabama where he earned a degree in computer information systems.

Joe fell in love with Alabama and it's remarkable landscapes. His hiking continued and in 2000 a small publisher from Virginia, Beachway Press, gave him the opportunity to put his two favorite pasttimes together and was contracted to write the book, "Hike America: Alabama". Beachway was later purchased by Falcon Books. The company changed the title to "Hiking Alabama". The book is now getting ready to have its fourth edition released.

Since that time, Joe's rejection slip collection has stopped growing. He currently enjoys a successful freelance writing career, has authored three other books including "Paddling Alabama"(Falcon Books), "Baseball in Mobile" (Arcadia Publishing), and "Best Tent Camping Alabama"(Menasha Ridge Press,due out later this year.) In addition Joe has three more in the pipelines with publishers including a murder mystery and a collection of humorous short stories.
