Author Biography


Hi! I’m Joel Wilson and the author of the novel, "Rescue of the Heart." I apologize that I don’t have the initials after my name that would represent my level of education. I did attend some college where I studied British Literature and English Composition, but due to an unfortunate event in my life, I ran out of money and could no longer afford college. That, however, has not derailed my desire to write. It seems to be the one thing I do best; of course you will be the judge of that and I will cherish your opinion deeply.
Most of my education comes from life itself and the people I have known or come into contact with. I have worn many hats; from fast food cook, to garbage man; from warehouse worker to selling insurance and to computer specialist working for Uncle Sam. Yes, I've been kicked around a lot, but I've learned so much.
I love sports, art, a good story and I think that school teachers are the greatest hero's who are ridiculously underpaid and unappreciated.
I was born in Little Rock, Arkansas where lived most of my life. Thank God I finally met my wife on a trip to Denver, Colorado and that is where I now reside. My wife is Tina and she is my inspiration; the love of my life. All our children have left the nest and now we have two dogs that we call our kids.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I hope you like my work.

Reviewed by Jean Brickell for Readers' Favorite

"Rescue of the Heart" is a fascinating book about love, an airline crash, an island that appears deserted, a love sick husband that mourns the death of his wife, and also hopes against hope that she could still be alive. Joel Wilson has written a compelling book about a horrible plane crash at sea, killing all aboard, or does it? Jonas searches for his wife but still finds comfort for his sadness in the arms of another woman who resembles Stacy.

You will enjoy this love story about two people very much in love that are separated by a plane crash and supposedly by the death of the wife, Stacy. But Jonas misses her terribly and wants to think that there could be a chance that she is still alive. The author Joel Wilson has written "Rescue of the Heart" apparently to evoke a tear or two unless you are a stronger person than I am. The book is a very human story about people who find comfort in the arms of others, forgiveness and love. The book is also an adventure story of a very strong woman that fights for survival against great odds and finds the inter strength to win battles against the sea, the sharks, the cold, hunger and the ever present loneliness. This is a book that will hold your interest and leave you with a "feel good" feeling after reading it.
