Cliff Ashpaugh

Cliff Ashpaugh, author of JOSH'S WALL. Set in the early 1960s in the wilds of San Gabriel Valley, it’s a coming-of-age story about a boy who wakes up to a world of bullies, liars, and strangers—including himself. An award-winning writer of short stories, Cliff Ashpaugh is currently putting the final touches on his second novella, about an attempted murder on the high seas. You can usually find him hanging around the San Pedro harbor, on the deck of the thirty-two-foot sailing cruiser he calls home.
