About the author:
Richard Tillotson has been a Peace Corps volunteer in Borneo, a playwright in New York, a copywriter in Hawaii, and is a relative of an English Lord, all of which helped him write ACTS OF GOD WHILE ON VACATION, a National Semi-Finalist for the 2009 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.
Acts of God While on Vacation
ACTS OF GOD WHILE ON VACATION was a National Semi-Finalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. It begins with a death threat received by a philandering general manager of a lavish Hawaii resort, jumps to an anthropologist researching headhunters in the jungles of Borneo, then to a demonic, scandal-mongering paparazzo in New York, and on to a gorgeous, party-loving English aristocrat in London. Alternately desperate and hilarious adventures draw them all to Waikiki, where their arrival coincides with an international conference on shamanism and a catastrophic, force-five hurricane.

“A shamanically-skewed romp of brilliant insight and slapstick comedy” – HAWAII PUBLIC RADIO
“Laugh-out-loud funny, while also ringing true” – HONOLULU WEEKLY
“A comic novel with serious edges. Even more remarkable: It’s one of the few fictions set in Hawaii that gets all the details right.” – HONOLULU MAGAZINE
