Joel Kreissman, also known as Zarpaulus, is a furry writer from Wisconsin active in the fandom since 2009.
Joel started writing science-fiction while studying for a Bachelor's of Science in Molecular Biology. He has tried to incorporate this scientific background into his writing.
In 2012 he started writing his first novel, The Pride of Parahumans, which he self-published in 2015 and re-published with Thurston Howl Publications in 2016. From this story he developed the Para-Imperium universe which he continues to develop and write about.
In recent years he has started to branch into horror, primarily with anthology submissions.
