Paul’s Writing

October 20th, 2017

My Writing:

Besides helping others win good press, I also contribute articles about wine/booze and travel topics to publications such as The Washington Post, Hemispheres, Tampa Bay Times, Wine Enthusiast, Penthouse, Boston Globe, Cracked (yes, that Cracked), Dallas Morning News, Chicago Tribune, PUNCH, National Geographic Traveler and Wine & Spirits.

I’m author of Organic, Shaken and Stirred: Hip Highballs, Modern Martinis and Other Totally Green Cocktails (Harvard Common Press). Buy it on Amazon. I blither about organic cocktails in this Los Angeles Times interview.

And I’ve written a novel. Not a very good one. In fact, it’s pretty puerile. But it’s only three bucks for the e-book version. It’s called Trouble Brewing (Dark Alley Press). More about (including how to buy) here. More info on from publisher  Dark  Alley Press.
