Former Senator Will Espero Announces “Passion In Paradise” Book Signing Events

A former state senator, Filipino American Will Espero served in the Hawaii legislature for almost two decades.

Now in retirement, Espero is a first-time novelist with his debut novel titled “Passion In Paradise.”

To celebrate this milestone, Espero announced two in-person book signing events on Feb. 19th, 2-5 pm, at The ARTS at Marks Garage, 1159 Nu’uanu Ave., and Mar. 4th, 5:30-8 pm, at Downtown Art Center.

The novel follows two men campaigning in the gubernatorial election: Jarod Wong, a conservative hotel tycoon, and his chief rival, Thomas Henderson who is a Navy veteran and a Honolulu councilman.

Espero says that the Wong and Henderson families are competing in “modern-day Hawaii politics, business, and love.”

The novel also tackles various issues in Hawaii such as cannabis legalization, prostitution, homelessness, and the police system.

“Ambition, power, greed, hypocrisy, lust, hope, and dreams are found in the land of Aloha,” Espero says about his debut novel.

“Passion In Paradise” is available in paperback, hardcover, and eBook and can be purchased online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
