VJ Books Presents Author Josh Malerman!
Josh Malerman has been writing stories since he was a little kid. He started writing novels while on the road with The High Strung, for whom he is the lead singer and songwriter. After accumulating a veritable menagerie of drafts left to languish on a shelf, fate (and a good friend) stepped in and Malerman found himself a published author.
Released in 2014, Malerman's debut novel, The Bird Box, earned him the Michigan Notable Book Award and nominations for both the James Herbert Award and the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel. Bird Box was also adapted by Netflix for the screen, starring Sandra Bullock. He has since published more than a half-dozen novels and novellas.
Malerman lives in Ferndale, Michigan.
