Joe Mynhardt

Name: Joe Mynhardt

Joe Mynhardt is a South African horror writer and teacher. With multiple publications and a tome of story ideas scraping for a chance to be written, Joe is definitely a writer to keep an eye on. In his spare time Joe blogs about haunted buildings as well as scary movies. Be sure to check out his collection of eerie photographs.

Joe Mynhardt took up writing at the end of 2008 and has enjoyed remarkable success. Joe contributes to horror fiction in more ways than his own work. He maintains a constant presence on several of the major horror writer’s forums as a contributor and adviser. He’s also a moderator for a foremost writer’s group, Mywriterscircle. All in all, he keeps his finger on the active pulse of current horror.

In his non-fictional life, Joe is a primary school teacher who enjoys reading, watching movies and collecting rare coins. After matriculating in 1998, he moved to Bloemfontein, South Africa, where he received an honors degree in Education Leadership and Management.

Joe devotes himself to his wife, his work, and to feeding his two dogs. I’m sure if something happened, and he was incapacitated, he wouldn’t mind if his dogs ate him. After all, it would be a shame to let all that talent go to waste.
