Paul Ellis


Paul Ellis grew up in North Carolina and graduated from Wake Forest University. He served nearly six years as a US Marine Corps officer and aviator, including a tour in Vietnam. After his military service, subsequent years were spent deep inside the underground subculture of the 1970’s.
He later engaged in a successful professional career, advocating for a national system of workforce training to the Texas government and The White House. As the president of a career college he was a leader in organizing job training programs in Texas and speaking for those without a voice. His writing is etched from these experiences.
Paul resides in Mexico on the island of Cozumel with his bicultural family, spending his time as a professional SCUBA diver and writer. Glory’s Child is his debut novel, retrieved from his own experiences surrounding the Vietnam War.
