Passionate about writing, food and travel, his love of adventure led Joel to hitchhike from Kenya to South Africa, whitewater-raft the Zambezi River, canoe the Okavango Delta, explore the Ngorongoro Crater, climb Mt.Kilimanjaro, and hike the Chimanimani Mountains. The thrill and terror of those first-hand experiences are brought to life in Lot's own adventures.
Joel began his career as a government bureaucrat and erstwhile journalist and is now making amends to society as a starving author. He shares his non-existent garden in Tennessee with endless hordes of mosquitoes, mobs of psychotic squirrels, three jack rabbits, a ravenous herd of deer and an elusive mole named Darwin.

Long Road Out of Ur
by Joel Thimell
Something is rotten in Sumeria. A troublesome priest has been murdered; the pagan ziggurat defiled; a royal tomb robbed; and a would-be grifter, Lot, is in the wrong place at the wrong time. His father, grandfather and cousin are each likely suspects and Lot doesn't know who he can trust. Everyone thinks he knows where the loot is hidden and someone wants it all--even if it's over Lot's dead body.
