More About the Author
Joan Nelson Eisen has turned her artistic energy and talent to writing her debut novel, Final Exit: A Suspenseful Tale of Passions Unleashed, written under the name Joan Nelson.
Joan Nelson Eisen is an award-winning artist who began her career as a fashion designer and went on to become a successful interior designer in New Jersey. A long time lover of fiction, she drew upon her creative talent to craft a novel with the same flair and passion she uses when designing a dramatic interior or compelling sculpture--with heart, art and inspiration.
During the years she stayed at home while her children were young, Joan developed her talent as a sculptor in stone, wood and metal. Her sculptures have won numerous awards and were highly praised in national and international competitions. She also draws and paints. The following is a review of her sculpture from a Paris art journal, a commentary that Joan treasures because she feels the critique captures her sensibility and soul:

"While completely being within the classic tradition, this young woman, Joan Eisen realizes her personal sculpture of a great plastic beauty. It is a work both lyric and narrative at the same time, evoking gentleness and serenity. Her style translates well the goal of this artist, who looks to express the beauty existing in all natural forms; and that expression being created through the skillful use of wood and stone.
Besides the elegant, feminine forms with their distinguished lines, Joan Eisen also reveals herself as a fine animal sculptor. Night birds, cats and their aloofness are created of very pure forms with tender and fine curved lines. The masses of harmonious shapes combine, and the rough textures contrast with the polished surfaces; the sum total of which admirably receive and reflect the light and shadow of each unique piece of sculpture."
When her two sons were in junior high school, Joan enrolled in The New York School of Design to study interior design. She is now the owner of Joan Eisen Interiors in Morristown, New Jersey, a member of ASID, NCIDQ qualified, and a Certified Interior Designer.
Joan's design skills and creativity were on display in the 2010 Mansion in May Showhouse, a fundraiser for the Morristown Memorial Hospital. Her interiors have also been featured in Elegance by Design, Savvy Living, NJ Country Roads, Design NJ and the Record Homescape Section.
In October, 2000, the New Jersey Star Ledger wrote an article about Joan and the home she designed for empty nester living. She was one of the first local designers to decry the excessive size and vulgarity of McMansion-style conspicuous consumption and urge homeowners to think in terms of smaller, more ecologically-friendly and beautifully detailed spaces.
Joan is a Jersey girl and has lived in the state all her life, with the last 25 years in the Morris and Essex county area. She is an accomplished gardener and her skills include creating curb appeal for residences and apartment buildings, a service she terms Property Enhancement. She is also an avid animal lover and a supporter of St. Hubert's Animal Shelter. Joan is extremely proud of her two sons, Steven and Brian, and is a breast cancer survivor since 1995.

As the story of Final Exit unfolded, I found myself so engrossed in the characters and the unexpected series of events that I could not rest until I knew the outcome. Joan Nelson depicts her characters with great depth and eloquence. She delves into both the loving and sinister aspects of the human condition which is at times startling. This is a must read.
Ms. Nelson's writes with a sense of mystery and intrigue, captivating her reader with elegant prose. As the story develops and the characters reveal themselves, we learn of the Faustian bargain between Robert and his nefarious and ruthless father-in-law. Robert is haunted by a pledge made many years ago that eventually becomes intolerable as he finds himself deeply in love with Jennifer.
Sadness brings about a metamorphosis in Robert as he examines his life and past regrettable deeds during his new awakening. Ms. Nelson has written a romantic thriller with the colors, textures and balance only a creative, multifaceted artist could compose.
