      M. Paul Hollander Reveals Writing Secrets

      Abbreviated version: Author M. Paul Hollander will reveal writing secrets and talk about his historical fiction novels at the Fond du Lac Area Writers club meeting on January 28 at MPTC in FdL, in room O102. Public is invited. Free.

      Full version:

      History holds more stories than can ever be told. Many accounts are filled with conflict, drama and emotion, which make for great stories, but the problem is that we never know all of the facts.

      Historical Fiction writers fill in the blanks and expand on the characters to turn a true historical incident into a compelling semi-fictional narrative. Paul Timm, an Eighth Grade Science and History teacher in Random Lake, is one of those writers.

      Under the penname M. Paul Hollander, Mr. Timm has written four novels in the genre. Three comprise a trilogy: “Curse of Atlantis: Roanoke,” “Curse of Atlantis: Jamestown,” and “Curse of Atlantis: Plymouth Rock.” His latest is “Lost Lady, the Lady Elgin Tragedy.” “Lost Lady” is based on real characters, and deals with the disaster of the famous steamship Lady Elgin, which sank in Lake Michigan in 1860, during Abraham Lincoln’s campaign for President.

      Hollander is going to talk about the incident, and then share some of the secrets about how he creates his fascinating Historical Fiction at the next meeting of the Fond du Lac Area Writers club on Tuesday night, January 28 at MPTC in Fond du Lac, in room O102, starting at 7:00 pm. His presentation will tell how he came to write those stories, and will contain interesting historical photographs in addition to the valuable information. After his talk, Paul will have a meet-and-greet and book signing.

      Anyone interested in Historical Fiction, Mr. Hollander or his books is invited to attend. Club membership is not required. Free--no charge.

      Further information about Mr. Hollander and his books is on his Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ladyelgintragedy/. All four books are available on Amazon.com. Info about the FdL Writers Club is on their website at https://fdlw.wordpress.com/home/.
