About Him

Overview... would-be novelist writing for a struggling newspaper in Puerto Rico. Alas, Paul seems to do more drinking and getting himself into jams than writing articles. Then again, the type of gritty stories that he wants to write about the poverty he sees in San Juan are repeatedly shot down by his editor, who doesn’t want to print anything that might hurt tourism. Fortunately, there’s plenty of good, strong rum to help make Paul forget that his life doesn’t seem to be moving forward.

Personality... talented but unfocused. Paul knows he’s not fulfilling his potential as a writer, but buckling down to work isn’t his strong suit. He’d much rather drink and pine after the beautiful woman, Chenault, that he saw skinny-dipping soon after arriving in Puerto Rico. But Chenault is already engaged to a man that soon hires Paul for some side projects, so it won’t be easy to win her heart, either. Sounds like another good reason to take a swig of rum.
