Paul W. Feenstra is a historical fiction novelist. Meticulously researched, and set in beautiful and mysterious New Zealand, Paul's novels frequently detail early colonial life and the impact colonialism had on native Maori. Says Feenstra, "History is about the untold story, and writing historical fiction is a wonderful way to present the past in a compelling and entertaining way." Born in Wellington, New Zealand, in 1959, to Dutch immigrants, Paul still commutes frequently to Los Angeles, California, where he worked as a multiple 'Emmy' nominated entertainment industry professional. For over 25 years he called the USA home and was fortunate to travel extensively throughout the country. His two grown children still reside in Los Angeles. Sought after as a public speaker by various learning institutions, professional member networks, and countless organisations, Paul has toured the length of New Zealand lecturing about his unique experiences in the Hollywood film and television industry. Recognised for his contribution in helping his country, Paul was honoured by the New Zealand government and invited to join the prestigious, 'World Class New Zealand, ' network. In his spare time, he enjoys photography and wrestling bears.
