Welcome to my corner of the Wattiverse!
I have always enjoyed writing, creating short stories and comics from an early age, but never considered it anything more than a hobby - a hobby that was forced to contend with all my other interests. Reading, drawing, airbrushing, music, video games, all seemed to come first. Until one day...

Perhaps it was the birth of my first daughter that re-awakened my imagination, but since then, ideas have been piling up, eager to find their way onto the page.

I write mostly Horror and Science Fiction, but I love to read anything, as long as it's original and gripping.

Thanks for stopping by :)

If you like my work, check out the rest of the Wattpadres - all of them are wonderful writers.

Some other random facts about me:
I'm 31, married, and have two young daughters - one is a question machine-gun; the other is a tornado in a dress.
I'm also an artist. Check out my stuff here: https://www.facebook.com/joshtownleyfineart
I have a PhD in Chemistry.
I whistle all the time. On high rotation at the moment are the Skyrim theme, Pirates of the Caribbean, and most of the songs from Les Miserables.

NOTE: I don't automatically follow back, or do read-for-reads / vote-for-votes. While I would love to be able to take read and critique requests, I'm way behind on my existing reading list, and simply can't add anything new at the moment.
