About the Author
Joe O'Neill is the CEO and founder of Waquis Global Services, which gives him the opportunity to travel the world and explore different cultures. He was inspired to write the Red Hand Adventures while on safari in Sri Lanka. As he was driving along in an old jeep, under the full moon casting silhouettes of wild elephants against the jungle wall, the image of a rebel orphan in old Morocco popped into his head. While he wishes he could take credit for the idea, it was a story that was already out there, waiting to be told. He lives in Hood River, OR, with his wife, daughter, four cats, and one dog.
