Member Since
June 2013

Paul Hollis always had wanderlust, living in 12 states and eventually working in all 50, luring him with the idea of touring the world at someone else’s expense. He has worked in 48 countries across five continents during nine years of living abroad teaching companies worldwide about potential global implications.
Paul’s travel experiences inspire the novels in “The Hollow Man” series and present a unique viewpoint to his globe-trotting thrillers, bringing the streets and villages of Europe to life. He now lives on Lake Erie. For more information, visit

W…moreAspiring authors may be overwhelmed by the amount of conflicting information that’s going to be flying at them. Try to tune the noise out and write. Write the story you need to write with your own style and voice, not the one you think agents, publishers, and readers want. Find the time to write on a schedule, every day and write until your story is drafted.

Proof it, edit it, stylize it, or whatever until you’re satisfied with the result. Then hire a professional editor. An editor will raise your work to the next level. You will hate her, disagree with her, and argue with her but listen to your editor and make the suggested changes. In the end your book will be much better for it.

During the writing process, join social media and make friends, not followers. Ask questions on your social networks and I guarantee we will answer from personal viewpoints of experience, knowledge, and strength. Avoid most of the Googled ‘how to’ articles which ask your same questions but never seen to get to the ‘how to’ part.(less)

At the time, terrorism was on the rise and I had been assigned to learn as much as I could about it. Most early acts of terrorism were specific to political and social leaders who represented offending ideologies. But terrorism was beginning to change its strategy to the familiar, senseless chaos we recognize today. The death of political figures no longer seemed to bother us as much as these new, random attacks against our children. Targets of innocence became preferable because they hit closer to our hearts and the fear inside us grew larger with each incident.(less)
