About the Author

Paul J. Mila traded in his corporate suit for a wetsuit, and now devotes his time to writing, scuba diving around the world, underwater photography, and speaking to groups about ocean conservation. He has enjoyed the opportunity to photograph and dive with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas, humpback whales in the Dominican Republic and the South Pacific Tonga Islands, gray whales in Mexico’s Baja lagoons, diverse sea life in the Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Bonaire, Hawaii, Antigua, and in his home waters off Long Island. Paul's underwater pictures have been featured in magazines and on web sites related to scuba diving. Following the advice of writers who said to write about what you know and like, he has incorporated the ocean and diving as the core of his writing. NEAR MISS is his fourth novel. Diving in the same waters as the characters in his books has enabled him to write with realism, and to describe for non-diving readers the beauty and wonder of exploring our undersea world. Paul and his family reside in Carle Place, New York, a small town on Long Island.

As a very young child, Judy was afraid of the water, until the fateful day her father picked her up and threw her, water-wings and all, into the deep end of the pool. She immediately realized that she had found her true element, and hasn't come out of the water since, except grudgingly to earn enough money to support her diving habit. She and her husband, Jon Fellows, spent their honeymoon in 1974 diving in Cozumel, and in the four decades since then have dived extensively around the Channel Islands of Southern California. They have also traveled to the Turks and Caicos Islands, Mexico's Sea of Cortez, Fiji, Borneo, Papua New Guinea, Tonga, and the Solomon Islands to get their diving fixes. Now retired and living in the Central Coast area of California, they have given up cold water diving, but still travel to tropical waters, always in search of new diving adventures.
