Joseph "Joe" LeValley
I am the author of a series of award-winning mystery/thriller novels featuring a young newspaper reporter based in the Midwest. Prior to becoming a novelist, I was a reporter myself and, for three decades, an executive in a large healthcare system. Writing always has been a big part of my jobs and my life. I also love music. I play drums and guitar and have composed about 40 original songs. In 2016 I was inducted into the Iowa Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. Have a BA in Journalism from Drake University and an MBA from the University of Iowa. Jane and I have six children and live on an acreage in Dallas County, Iowa.
