About Me

Andrew Joseph was born in London, UK, raised in Toronto, Canada, and cavorted in Ohtawara, Japan for three years. He is 53, married, has a son, and a since he began this blog, he is with his third cat. He has over 35,000 comic books and a thousand pioneer aviation-related tobacco cards and likes to build LEGO dioramas, coaches kid’s baseball and hockey for boys (and has coached girl’s soccer in the past for 10 years). Along with writing for a monthly industrial magazine, he also writes comic books and hates writing in the 3rd person. He also hates having to write this crap that no one will ever read. He writes:

  • the daily Japan – It’s A Wonderful Rife blog;
  • the occasional You Know What I Hate? blog;
  • And now Pioneers of Aviation blog.
  • He also wants to do more writing – for money, though. Contact him if you require help in making your website read better, need data written for your website or LinkedIn or ghostwritten for any magazines. He can write about any topic. Hey… he has no real knowledge about airplanes, but has learned as he continues to write about the glorious WWI and earlier history of aviation.

      Ha! Thanks! Always good to be proven wrong by someone other than my wife!
      I no longer write that ‘adult-content’ blog, after I accidentally wiped it out last month while trying to alter my e-mail on Google+. Why the two were related, I have no idea. Thanks for reading, GP!

    I just finished reading your deal about A.M. Herring. Glad that you’re interested, but there’s much more to the story, which, to be fair. you indicated. I have recently finished an eight year writing (35 year research), and am about to self-publich a two volume, 1500 page book concerning Herring – one of the most maligned, underrated of all aviation pioneers.

      Really, Dave? That’s very interesting… was I completely off-base about who Herring was a person (probably)? Did you find out where he was during those two large blocks of time? Can I read your book? I enjoy being surprised by people. I’m currently ready Ty Cobb: Terrible Beauty… and was surprised to learns he was the racist jerk he’s been made out to be, assuming the facts are correct—and I don’t doubt they are. Dave… I wish you great luck with your book venture… Cheers, Andrew Joseph

    Sorry for the long delay in responding. I have been going through the ridiculous process of having my book(s) formatted, while trying to figure out how to market them prior to a late year launch – hence my interest in your blog.

    I’d be glad to provide you with the softcover versions, once I have them printed (hopefully before Christmas of 2017); I had to write in the date since this has been such a long drawn-out process. Publishing as an independent author is no walk in the park, if you want your work to be noticed.

    I’m joining your blog. Maybe this will help keep me current!
