VJ Books Presents Author Joe Ide!

Author Joe Ide Joe Ide grew up in South Central Los Angeles. His upbringing was steeped in the culture and vernacular of "The Hood". As a child, he loved Sherlock Holmes stories, and his interest in the genre continued into his adult life. Ide earned a graduate degree in education and spent a brief stint working as a school teacher. He quickly discovered it did not suit him, and moved into teaching education at the university level. This did not suit him either. He became a business consultant and worked in human resources for some time before deciding to write screenplays.

When Ide sold his first screen play (after having written 12 others that did not sell), he started writing professionally. He was a successful screenplay writer, but eventually ran out of patience and enthusiasm and left the profession. It was after this that he began writing novels. His first novel, IQ, was published in 2016 and introduced his leading character, Isaiah Quintabe. IQ won the Shamus Award for Best First Private Eye Novel, as well as the Macavity and Anthony Awards for Best First Novel, and has been optioned for cable television.

Ide currently lives in Santa Monica, California.
