About Joseph Woodward
Joseph Woodward comes to you with a diverse background in marketing, music, and public relations. He was raised in central Ohio and attended Ohio State University. Writing short stories and poetry became a habit to relax with and stay fresh to be creative for his day job. His background in writing copy for a variety of products and services, gave him the ability to write “rich”…say a lot with fewer words. This style of expression lends to his entertaining short stories. They are perfect for the person on-the-go that doesn’t have the focus to follow a novel for three weeks, but still likes to read. His general physician commented that he can read one of Woodward’s stories on the train and reflect on it thru-out the day.
Among his interests and hobbies are his love for children, playing piano, and gardening. He has given piano lessons to his grandchildren and neighbor’s children. His gardening themes create a sense of getting away to enjoy nature. Woodward lives in central Florida with his wife Rebecca. They enjoy spending time with their four children and six grandchildren.
