About the Author
Joshua Gray was born in the mountains of rural Northern Virginia, outside Washington DC. He grew up in Alexandria VA, two miles from the nation’s capital and spent most of his adult life in the suburbs of the city. But he never lost his love for the mountains: he attended Warren Wilson College in the mountains of western North Carolina, and lived in the Western Ghats mountains in Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu, India from 2012-2014. He now lives in eastern Kentucky with his wife and two sons. He has been published in many journals, including Poets and Artists, Mipoesias, Blind Man’s Rainbow, Front Range Review, Iconoclast, Zouch Magazine and many others. His poetry has been nominated for Best of the Net, nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and featured on Verse Daily’s Web Weekly section. For two years he was the DC Poetry Examiner for Examiner.com where he wrote reviews of poetry collections by local poets as well as articles on the local poetry scene. He is active on Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon and many other social media sites. His first book Beowulf: A Verse adaptation With Young Readers In Mind was written for his oldest son when he was six, but as the title implies, it can be enjoyed by an older audience, including adults. His book-length poem Principles of Belonging is based on true stories about his parents and parents-in-law, and is written using many different poetry forms, including some modernized ancient forms. His chapbook Mera Bharat is a collection of poems based on his experiences in India, and was published in 2014. In 2015 he published Steel Cut Oats, a collection of poems that honor the traditions of food from a cultural standpoint, rejecting the modern processed and unhealthy food industry.
