Joe Harwell


Joe Harwell thrives in a luxurious, secluded hideout, but claims to reside in the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Early on, Joe was a sensible character who married his high school sweetheart, Becky. They shared 36 blissful years until her death in November, 2008. At that time, Joe’s life took an unpredictable turn.

His work history includes retail management, coal mining, telecommunications, TV, newspaper, collections, and as a buyer of metals. This extreme variety suggests someone who is unafraid of new challenges.

Since 2009, Joe has been writing and self-publishing novels and memoirs set in Oklahoma and Arkansas, and occasionally showing up at writers group meetings in Tulsa to maintain his cover. One novel is a futuristic thriller and the rest are historical fiction involving vampires, paranormal adventures, criminal investigation, political corruption, and the media.

Rumor has it he is currently taking notes on conversations between the voices in his head on multiple topics for new novels. Readers should expect more futuristic thrillers, vampires, zombies, concubines, the old west, and murder for hire.

  • River Of Time on Aug. 16, 2014

    I just finished reading this excellent novel. Although time travel has been written about in a thousand different ways, Sharon Ricklin Jones has put a refreshing new twist on it. Wrapping a powerful love story around one of the more traumatic events of this century, I was unexpectedly drawn in by River of Time and kept turning pages to the end. You won’t be disappointed by making this your next read.
  • Guardian Of My Heart on Sep. 13, 2017

    I'm a guy who doesn't generally read romance novels. When I was given an opportunity to read an advance copy of "Guardian of My Heart" I decided to give it a try based on descriptions of the plot and characters. Come on, you gotta admit pairing a redhead, virgin sex therapist with a Super Bowl winning quarterback opera singer is too outlandish not to see what happens. Ladies (and gentlemen), you won't regret diving into this well written story by first time novelist, Samantha Goodwin.
