In his new novel, Murder at Whalehead, Joe C. Ellis tells the story of two Ohio families vacationing on the Outer Banks. They look forward to sun, sea, rest, and relaxation. Instead, they cross paths with a homicidal maniac. Can they stop him before another innocent victim dies?

"Murder at Whalehead will absorb the reader from its first tantalizing page to its last satisfying conclusion."

Meet the Author

Joe C. Ellis, a big fan of the North Carolina’s Outer Banks, grew up in the Ohio Valley. A native of Martins Ferry, Ohio, he attended West Liberty State College in West Virginia and went on to earn his Master’s Degree in education from Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio. He has been employed by Martins Ferry City Schools for the last thirty-three years where he currently teaches art and computer graphics at Martins Ferry High School. He also has been lay preaching for the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. for the last twenty-one years. He pastors two churches in the Martins Ferry area, the Scotch Ridge Presbyterian Church and the Colerain Presbyterian Church.
His writing career began in 2001 with the publication of his first novel, The Healing Place. In 2007 he began the Outer Banks Murder Series with the publication of Murder at Whalehead and in 2010 Murder at Hatteras. The popularity of this series continues to grow with his 2012 installment, Murder on the Outer Banks.
Joe credits family vacations on the Outer Banks with the inspiration for these stories. Joe and his wife, Judy, have three children and three grandsons. Although the kids have flown the nest, they get together often and always make it a priority to vacation on the Outer Banks whenever possible. He comments, “It’s a place on the edge of the world, a place of great beauty and sometimes danger—the ideal setting for murder mysteries.”
One of Joe’s passions is distance running. Murder on the Outer Banks opens with a 5K footrace in which an older man runs to victory against much younger competition. In the last year (2011) Joe has posted 5k times and half marathon times at the national class level for his age group. Because running definitely keeps him younger physically and mentally, he enjoyed writing a novel with these themes as important threads in the plot. Joe hopes to continue to write stories set on the Outer Banks and run along its beaches for many years to come.

    You Must check it out!

    This was great read! It took him 1 page to reel me in. Others (Patterson, Flynn, etc.) have taken over 100 pages and barely maintained my interest, but Mr. Ellis captured it right away. He also didn't feel the need to put in useless backstory information like the aformentioned writers do to fill space. I highly recommend it!

    A reviewer

    Joe C. Ellis has done it again! This book is outstanding! I happened to pick this book up while vacationing in the Outer Banks this past summer! I had just been married at the Whalehead Club. What a treat it was to read! It takes some twist and turns that will keep you wanting to read to the very end! He has a third book coming out, and I can't wait to read that one, too! Excellent read!
