About Joseph Massucci
“This fiction can become reality. Our reality.”
Joe’s 1997 technothriller CODE:ALPHA anticipated ways terrorists might launch a man-made plague and wipe out the entire population of the U.S. eastern seaboard.
He drew from his own experience with the ocean-going behemoths. Standing in the engine room of a 70,000 deadweight-ton oil tanker en route to a refinery in Virginia, Joe spent several days interviewing its captain for a magazine article.
His own voyage as a writer began, improbably, in the steel-town of Pittsburgh, Pa., where he published The Berry Street News at age 10.
After graduating from Duquesne University with a degree in journalism, Joe earned a master’s degree in rhetoric and communications from the University of Pittsburgh.
Editorial assignments from a major oil company took him to the Middle East, Europe and South America, where he experienced first-hand many of the conditions endured by characters in GORGON.
Along the way, Joe has written more than 2,500 articles on a variety of technical topics for corporate and trade publications – and authored four other best-selling novels.
Now founder and CEO of Safari Multimedia, LLC in Texas, he builds killer websites for corporations and helps writers edit, design and publish their own stories.
