Joseph Rhea is a scientist, science fiction author, computer game designer, and believer in moving humanity forward, not backward. Advised by his high school English teacher to pursue a life of writing, he instead chose a career in engineering and science, driven by his need to explore the world and help create new technologies. Now he has come full circle and is using that experience to become a new voice in today's science fiction.

His debut novel, CYBERDROME, is a near-future, science fiction thriller that follows rogue programmer, Alek Grey, into a computer-generated virtual world to rescue the love of his life. This award-winning book has been highly acclaimed by critics and readers alike. Learn more >>

Joseph’s next project was a post-apocalyptic undersea saga called NOVUM. This 5-book series thrusts you below the surface of a hostile ocean, where a young cargo-sub captain named Jacob Stone must join forces with an untested crew to fight an enemy that threatens to destroy what’s left of the human race.

He then made the jump to screenwriting by adapting the first book in his Novum saga into a feature screenplay that achieved the Second Round at the prestigious Austin Film Festival. Fueled by his success, he has now completed a new original screenplay which will serve as an “Origin” story to his Novum saga. Learn more >>
