Joe Shine grew up in Austin, TX (the greatest city ever), and is a graduate of Texas A&M University. He has an MFA from the Peter Stark Producing Program at the University of Southern California, and after brief stints in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, Joe returned home to Austin (repeat: the greatest city ever). I Become Shadow, a 2016 Lone Star List selection, is his first novel.
At #AMACON16, Joe will take part in a panel on Heroes and Villains in Young Adult Literature!
