About the author:
Josh Langston has been a writer all his life, beginning as a child in Minneapolis, MN, and continuing to his current residence in Marietta, GA, which he shares with his bride of four decades, their two undisciplined mutts, and an indeterminate number of under-sized goldfish.
A graduate of Georgia State University with a degree in Journalism, Josh's writing tastes quickly shifted away from non-fiction. His short stories have been published in a variety of magazines and anthologies. His latest novel, CAPTIVES, co-authored with Barbara Galler-Smith of Edmonton, Alberta, debuted in May, 2011. The second title in the historical fantasy trilogy DRUIDS, CAPTIVES is set in the 1st century BC.
DRUIDS, book one and namesake of the fantasy trilogy, was a finalist for the 2010 Aurora Award, Canada's top prize for speculative fiction. For his work on that book, Josh was nominated for Georgia Writer of the Year in the same year.
When not writing fiction, Josh mentors aspiring young writers and develops multi-media presentations about Georgia's past for historical societies around the state.
*** CAPTIVES reached #3 on the Calgary Herald's Best-seller list for April 17, 2011, three weeks *before* the book's official release! ***
The town of Resurrection doesn't exist. Residents pay no taxes and receive no services. And they LIKE it that way. So when an IRS auditor called "The Executioner" starts nosing around, everyone in Resurrection gets nervous. Built and populated by country folk, a band of wandering Indians, and a traveling carnival, Resurrection has some unique ideas about what life should be like. When The Executioner runs headlong into Resurrection's madcap economics, something has to give.
