Joe  Ide

Joe Ide was born in the United States and is of Japanese ancestry. His favorite novels as a kid in South Central Los Angeles were Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes mysteries. He was enthralled by the notion that a person might face the world and defeat his foes just through intelligence. He went on to get his master's degree and work in a variety of fields before creating IQ, his first novel, which was inspired by his early experiences and his love of Sherlock Holmes.
