Joshua Lee Frederick, aka Ronin Writing, is a 27-year-old fantasy and science fiction writer hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio. He’s been writing since he was little—when his active imagination first started getting him into trouble! In 2017, fresh out of the military, he decided it was time to start following his passions—at any cost! After selling all of his things, buying a van, and reuniting with his high school sweetheart, Joshua took to the road. Since then, he’s driven across the entire United States, visiting: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. He’s currently planning an East Coast tour for the summer of 2018, intending to finally visit Washington DC for the first time!
Since quitting the “normal life”, Joshua has devoted all of his time to writing. He currently attends Southern New Hampshire University (Online) for a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing, Fiction. He also maintains several social media platforms full-time (Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and WordPress) and posts writing advice videos to his YouTube channel every Wednesday. Joshua is currently working on a three-part fantasy series entitled Devils of Kharashan. The first draft of the first book is due finished by 12 June 2018.
Joshua writes fiction, but he strives to blend important topics into his work. His battles with depression, suicide, alcoholism, war, and addiction guide his efforts in bringing awareness of these topics to the mainstream. He hopes that he can help heal the world—and himself—by doing what he loves to do the most.
