My name is Joseph Van Landschoot and I find stories incredible. At a young age I would make up wild tales about heroes and far off worlds full of adventure in which people battled monsters and good always prevailed. My name fit me well growing up as I didn’t rise to anything exceptional but the idea of experiences being told in extravagant and fantastical ways always burned a fire in my soul.
My journey into telling stories as an adult came from a slipped disc at twenty. The work accident gave me a vision. I saw the character Nathan and through the pain I was compelled to carry his story out. I always loved the medium of films so I attempted to write a script, but after some struggles my aunt and best friend convinced me to write a novel, and so it was.
Since its inception Nathan’s grand tale has grown to be six novels long. I have also written scripts, one titled: Agent Heads that made it into film festivals in 2022.
I am no literary savant but more and more, words find a way to fascinate me. The characters of people I meet and how they came to be who they are, inspire me. The never ending story of life surrounds us and our addition to it make for great things if we so choose. That is at least the summary of what I believe and what I leave with you.
