More About the Author

She's been called a Renaissance woman. Beginning her creative journey in fashion as a merit scholarship student at Parson's School of Design, later developing her fine art talent as an award-winning sculptor, then becoming an accomplished Interior Designer.

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.

Full Bio
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.

Robert is haunted by a pledge made many years ago that eventually becomes intolerable as he finds himself deeply in love with Jennifer.

Format: Paperback
Used to be you had to read Tolstoy or Flaubert to find a truly remarkable adultery novel that had psychological depth and dimension beyond the fundamentally provocative content, but now Nelson has brought us a 21st century spin in the grand tradition of truly compelling prose. This is a remarkable debut novel that makes one wonder where Nelson has been hiding and, more importantly, what will her next book be? Of the new writers recently emerging, Nelson is in the top ranks and must be read.

Never has a novel evoked so many emotions in me as did reading Final Exit, a debut novel by Joan Nelson. Her clever word usage and knowledge of medicine, interior design and horticulture makes this novel an informative, thrilling, suspense-filled and emotionally charged work of literary art.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Lucia E on November 25, 2010
Format: Paperback
Final Exit is the story of Dr. Robert Geller, a cardiothoracic surgeon who appears to have everything, but has never experienced a meaningful or loving relationship. When he meets Jennifer Allen, his life changes in ways he had never anticipated. Joan Nelson takes us on a sensuous and sometimes frightening journey through the development of their relationship, his emotional growth, and just how far he's willing to go to preserve his new found passion.

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.

From the first chapter to the very end, Final Exit kept me so absorbed that it was difficult to put the book down. Because so many of the sections were so descriptive and so beautifully written, I couldn't help but to go back to re-read the passages again and again. Exciting story - suspenseful, sensual and erotic. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Vividly drawn characters and unpredictable plot turns make Final Exit an engaging and enjoyable read. At first glance, Dr. Geller appears to be a sophisticated, prestigious doctor whose fame and status allow him to get away with social privileges. But that's where the twists begin, and they keep on coming until the end. This book would make a really great movie!

I read this book and it is one of the best I've read in a long time. I couldn't put it down and when I did, I couldn't wait to get back to it. I loved the ending... This is one book I am sure to read again. So much happens in each chapter that it is captivating and memorable. Love that it is written about the New Jersey area and places I've been. Hope she are working on a new book. This one was a complete success.

Format: Paperback
Final Exit takes the reader through a compelling journey of Dr. Robert Geller's complicated relationships with his wife and her strong willed father only to realize that real, passionate love is obtainable when he meets his true soul mate and lover, Jennifer Allen. The book relates Dr. Geller's early career ambitions; the price he paid for success only to live a monotonous existence until Jennifer enters his world and the life altering changes that were necessary for him to find happiness with her. Sensuality, unleased passion and true suspense make this novel not only a page turner but hard to put down until the very last page.

Format: Paperback
The world the reader is brought into begins with a seemingly ordinary consultation in Dr. Robert Geller's office with Jennifer Allen, a graceful woman and a recent widow who questions the heart surgeon about the precise details of her husband's death. The tempo of the novel starts calmly, where all human forces seem under control, but the astute reader senses that all is not as it seems.

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.
