Josh Loomis, the Blue Ink Alchemist, was born in Omaha, Nebraska back in 1978. He lived most of his life in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where he attended school at Parkland. He discovered a love for the written word at an early age, often escaping into stories of the fantastical when the real world got him down. He wrote his first short story in junior high and a novel-length story at 15. He’s been improving his voice and cultivating his style ever since.
His university years were spent at Bloomsburg, studying English for four years and Instructional Technology for one. He spent some time living just north of Pittsburgh and experienced an equal share of keen highs and abysmal lows. The journey he undertook brought him back out to the eastern side of the state and the shadow of Philadelphia, where he began writing again in earnest while taking web programming jobs to pay the bills. He then moved to Seattle to pursue larger opportunities in the gaming industry, be it as a storyteller or a developer.
He currently lives in Seattle with his partner, a frumpy Maine Coon, and an eloquent corn snake.
