What Kind of Names are They?

Main Line towns possess unusual names, such as Bala Cynwyd and Gladwyne for example. The English Quaker, pictured below, was given a charter by Charles II of England in 1681 to develop what is now called Pennsylvania. This forward thinking man of peace and religious tolerance sold the area which today is referred to as “The Main Line” to a group Welsh Quakers (Edward Jones and Company) in 1682. These Welsh settlers settled among the peace-loving Lenape Indians.
The Jones clan migrated from the regions of Bala, Cynwyd, Merionethshire, and North Wales and formed communities bearing similar names on the 5,000 acres they had purchased from the Englishman. How many can name this famous person of American history?
You can read my mystery about the Main line at or at Amazon/author/Paul Holl. Happy reading and guessing. Paul.

Review of the Week

“Will Power” is the second novel in the suspenseful “WILL TO LIVE THRILLER” series. The author continues his fast-paced writing cadence that captures and keeps his readers riveted to the story line while anxious for Will Hoyle, P.I. to solve the case! A May-December illicit affair, and a “runaway” senior on rough seas, provide the backdrop for the authentic characters and familiar east coast flavor. A must read for all mystery/legal/suspense fans!

Legal Topic #5: Does Your Will Need a Trust?

“Do I need a trust?” It is one of the most common questions posed to me by my clients. The answer depends upon your financial and familial situation. Therefore, it requires me to ask you some personal questions concerning income, investments, and family relationships.
Trust documents to avoid paying more taxes than necessary are popular. A trust to provide for a disabled person or minor child may be crucial for future care and survival. A trust that enables a spouse to live comfortably, tax free, and then passes a sizable estate to children is a money saver. A life insurance trust is fully deductible and can provide much needed income to a surviving partner. These are just a few examples of trusts that need to be tailored for each estate.
If you are a Pennsylvania resident and have questions about trusts I’d be happy to consult with you by email, free of charge for members of this group.
Thanks, and don’t forget to post a review about one of my books: Google – amazon/author/Paul Holl. Paul

Book Review of the WEEK

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat story, well told, a must read
Byharry brookson September 7, 2016
Format: Paperback
Since I too am an author I am always very critical when reading some else’s novel, however when reading “Will Power” (Paul’s best so far) there was no time for criticism. The story was so well told, the plot so riveting that my only criticism was, “I didn’t want it to end!” Don’t stop now Paul, you have us hooked. One of the most enjoyable reads I have had in a long time. Five stars. Can’t wait for the next series.

From Paris to Cuba – The Hemingway way

The immortal Ernest Hemingway wrote from experience – war, love, lost love, deep sea fishing and big game hunting. War in Africa, love in Paris and fishing in Cuba and Key West.
I wonder what that great writer would have thought of Lucy’s courageous escape from communist Cuba on a skiff with twelve men. I wonder if he ever fished off the Dry Tortuga islands in awe of the thousands of colorful, tropical fish and the sunken, ancient vessels. I wonder what he would have thought of my plot and prose in Living Will.
Hemingway stated that no one ever becomes a master at writing a story, but if you’d like to read or re-read masterful writing, get a copy of The Old Man and the Sea – Hemingway’s shortest novel. Then read one of mine and tell me how I’m doing.
