About the Author
Gene J. Parola, Ph.D. Called into service when the Korean war broke out, Mr. Parola served as an Air Intelligence Officer in the Navy during the run up to General MacArthur’s aborted attempt to invade China. Taking his discharge in Hawaii, he married a young lady from Honolulu, then began to pursue an academic career at Indiana University and University of Michigan-Flint. He retired from Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey after several years with the Ministry of Defense, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Traveling extensively in the Middle East during that time has given him a perspective that makes rich reading in his three collections of short stories. It also makes settings for his mystery novels* quite authentic. Upon receiving the Writer’s Digest, International First Prize award for Mrs. Parola’s Memoir, “Remembering Diamond Head, Remembering Hawaii” in 2001, the couple returned to Honolulu to continue research and writing about things Hawaiian. “Lehua”, is the first of a trilogy that has kept Mr. Parola in research for most of ten years. Since the action occurs before the Hawaiian written language was created, accurate information is scarce and true pictures of the Island culture must be carefully sorted out from often skewed missionary accounts. Later periods are more broadly presented with a variety of view points. Mr. Parola has been published in two volumes of short stories by “Bamboo Ridge Press, Journal of Hawaiian Literature and Arts” and in the collection, “Voices from the Universe”. He has written on the revolution in publishing in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, and written for the Island retirees magazine, ‘Generations’. He has published three collections of short stories. “Portraits of a Young Artist in Istanbul” from his collection, “The Little American Blonde” won an Editor’s Choice Award from Author’s Stand in June, 2012. * ‘Old Sins, New Sinners’, 2010 and ‘The Devil to Pay’, 2001, firstname.lastname@example.org
