J.A. Giunta was born in Brooklyn, New York, in November of 1969. Though he spent most of his childhood growing up on Long Island, he has been living in Arizona for more than twenty-five years.
Joe started writing stories at an early age, creating adventures for his pen and paper Dungeons & Dragons campaigns on a Commodore 64. Spooled from a dot-matrix printer, that first stapled manuscript has not survived, but it has evolved over the years to form The Ascension trilogy.
His first Fantasy novel, The Last Incarnation, was published in February of 2005. With a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Arizona State University, he is both an avid reader and gamer. He currently writes full-time.
He currently lives with his wife, Lori, and six-year old daughter, Ada Rose, in the perpetual summer that is central Arizona. He credits all of his work to the advent of air-conditioning.

But deep beneath the Nevada desert in a secret military base, the head of a classified mission has other ideas. Former solider Derrick Tillman brought his family there to keep them safe but he's about to find out that there are no more safe places on earth ... and that he, and the rest of his former team, are mankind’s last hope.
In a world of darkness, she is his light.
In a city where corruption knows no bounds, superhero Luminescence has found hers. On a stormy, moonless night, her powers fail her and she finds herself at the mercy of the villain Scythe, a man as dangerous as the blade he carries. Scythe’s reputation for evil is legend, but the punishment he brings has nothing to do with pain and everything to do with pleasure. It’s a wicked and sexy night that shakes Luminescence to her core. When Scythe warns her to stay out of his territory, she knows she should heed him – at least until her powers are at full strength.
Yet corruption spreads when no light is shed upon it. Luminescence is soon drawn back into the darkness. Scythe cuts a path straight to her, but even at low power, the gorgeous do-gooder proves to be his weakness. Passion blurs the line between justice and vengeance, but allegiances are hard to break. What will win out in the end? Good, evil, or their love?
