Joe D. Wells, Jr. (aka Island Joe) was born in Arkansas on June 20, 1959. His childhood involved a lot of moving, attending perhaps 10 different schools, before graduating high school from Colombia Military Academy.
He worked various jobs around Memphis i.e. Waiting table, book rock bands, before making his stake as a off Wall Street Investment Banker, traveling the world, several times over. His knowledge of Wall Street is self taught
He moved his family to Key West, Florida in the early 90's, then losing his first wife, Elizabeth,, to cancer, he was left to raise three children, which he will tell you is no easy job and perhaps, he could have done better, but he sure could have done a lot worse. Everyone seems fairly normal.
His family started Island Joe's Coffee Roasting Company around 2005, which has gained international fame for their ability to roast fine gourmet coffee and espresso. Then he begin baking, which bakers start early in the morning. Finding he had time between baking pastries and roasting coffee for customers, he begins writing, finding the solitude at the café early the mornings to be very relaxing. He can write without being disturbed, after all Key West is a drinking island, which most occurs at night and Joe D. has be known to enjoy his drink.
