Joshua and I have both had books published by Essay Press.  Here is his bio below:


JOSHUA CASTEEL served as a US Army interrogator and Arabic linguist at Abu Ghraib Prison from June 2004 to January 2005.  Shortly thereafter he was honorably discharged as a Conscientious Objector.  He was formerly on the board of directors of Iraq Veterans Against the War, holds Master of Fine Arts degrees in Playwriting and Nonfiction Writing from the University of Iowa, and has spoken on ethics and US defense policy at universities and centers throughout the US, UK, Ireland, Sweden and Italy.  He is the author of Letters From Abu Ghraib (Essay Press), The City of God (Pax Christi Publishing), and his play Returns (Alaska Quarterly Review) has been performed widely in the US and abroad.  Joshua teaches nonfiction writing at Columbia College Chicago and is pursuing further graduate studies in literature, religion, and philosophy at the University of Chicago Divinity School.


Joshua could also use your good thoughts, help, and prayers. He is teaching for us this semester at Columbia College in our Graduate MFA in Nonfiction Program.
