Joe is a writer and retired police captain living in Toms River, New Jersey. He has recently completed a novel, "The Unlost," due out in 2015. Hefferon is a regular guest writer and has published a series of articles featuring inspiring women.

Hefferon was in law enforcement for 25 years before he retired as captain, and is a single dad and father of two (a daughter and son.) Despite his busy life, Joe has been gracious enough to contribute wonderful stories - interviews of extraordinary and inspiring women - to the Women In Business site.

Joe comes by his desire to support the interests of women honestly:

"I wanted to write about Spectacular Women because I admire them. My father died at 41 and my mother raised four young kids by herself, with a little support from my wonderful Aunts: Helen, Kate and Betty Ann. My mother was herself orphaned by 14 and quit high school to work. I admire the resilience of women who ignore adversity and just get done what needs doing. My way of honoring them is to find extraordinary women that other young people can admire, who they can aspire to emulate, women who are entrepreneurs, visionaries, and work in male-dominated professions, or like Karen, achieve the improbable by fostering solidarity with misogynist rulers in remote lands."
