ABOUT OUT GUEST:
Paul J. Mila has expanded his horizons from Brooklyn to Baja and beyond. In 2002, he traded in his corporate suit for a wetsuit and now devotes his time to writing, scuba diving around the world, underwater photography, and speaking to groups about ocean conservation. He has enjoyed the opportunity to photograph and dive with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas, humpback whales in the Dominican Republic and the South Pacific Tonga Islands, diverse sea life in the Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Bonaire, Hawaii, Antigua, and in his home waters off Long Island, NY. Paul's underwater pictures and videos have been featured in magazines, National Geographic Television, and on web sites related to scuba diving.
As a novelist, Paul has incorporated the ocean and diving as the core of his writing. Diving in the same waters as the characters in his books enables him to write exciting, realistic dive adventures and to accurately describe the beauty and wonder of our undersea world. "Bubbles Up" is his first "dive" into nonfiction writing. When not diving, Paul writes thriller/adventure novels, works at a local dive shop, and coaches tennis. PaulMila.com MilaBooks.com.
