About Me

Joshua Pantalleresco

Writer, Podcaster, Editor

In short, I write stuff, I podcast, and I do some editing on the side. I am a freelancer and I want you to hire me.


I write books. I currently have five out. Some are traditional, some are independent, but all of them are great. I accidentally wrote and got published in 2014. I had a vision of the slave boy in a tower wondering what was out there, and started writing. I thought it would just be a longer poem, but in the end it became a book. I got Florence Chan to do some pictures and I had a book. Cool. My initial plan was to just publish this on Smashwords. It turns out though that someone I interviewed, took a shine. Her name was Justine and she has this great publishing house called Mirror World Publishing. I ended up publishing not just The Watcher, but also, Stormdancer and The Wandering God.

After the pandemic started I started publishing some books on my own. In 2020, I published my first sci fi Novel The Cloud Diver. I followed that up with another poetry series, mashing up Alice in Wonderland with Greek Mythology. The first book Alice Zero, is nominated for the Elgin Award for a chapbook.

In addition, I freelance. I have been published in Writer’s Weekly, Anime Herald, First Comics News, Author Magazine, and more. I still am writing articles to this day.

In addition to writing, I do a podcast, visually on Twitch and my audio is available on any app. I interview authors and other creatives. My podcast Just Joshing is a 2018 Aurora Award winning show and was nominated in 2019 and 2020. There are currently six hundred plus episodes and counting with the show. The archives are here, and you can watch it live on twitch.
