About Joel Eden

Welcome to my home on the web!

This is the place to find information on my current novels and learn about the books I have in progress. I'll keep you updated as I move through the creative process.


I love to write horror books because there are no boundaries to get in the way of a good story. My imagination needs room to roam. I also like to explore the dark parts of the human mind where fear mixes with paranoia. It sounds creepy, but it's fun to be bad.

I live in Chantilly, Virginia with my wife and two sons. Born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwestern Virginia, I spent my early years as a television, radio, and stage performer.

I graduated from Virginia Tech in 1984 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. In 1995, I received a Master's Degree in Information Management from Marymount University. 

After spending what seemed like a lifetime buried in corporate America as a middle manager, I started writing full time in 2003. An award-winning novelist, I have appeared on FOX & Friends on the FOX News Channel and I have appeared on many nationally syndicated radio shows.

I am proud to be a Southern author. There's a lot of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Allman Brothers on my phone and I still get desperate cravings for warm Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I try to give readers a flavor of the people and the cultural nuances you can only find in the South. 

All of my books are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and many other online retailers. My novels are also available for the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble Nook, the iPad, and many other mobile readers. You can follow me on Twitter at @JoelEdenAuthor and on Facebook at  www.facebook.com/joeledenauthor. Take a look around and drop me a line. I'd love to hear from you.

An affair is like an emotional ambush, and the consequences can be lethal. India Monet had no idea that within the span of a couple of days, her life would take a hard left turn into a hurricane of trouble.

Cry of the Wampus Cat

Two hundred years ago in the Appalachian Mountains , Kasa, a young Cherokee woman, did not trust her husband. She suspected that while he was supposed to be on hunting trips, he was seeing another woman.  

Next Girl

Ryan Spazmarek was a dork. He was not smart enough to be a nerd or weird enough to be a geek. A straight B student, he suffered through school with Spaz as his nickname. 

Coming Soon

Take a look at some of the ideas Joel is working on for his future projects. Some projects are more developed at this point in time, but all of these ideas will be published.
