Ten years of College for Art and 0 Degrees, Aviation Electrical Engineer, 10X Published Author, Pulitzer Prize Nomination 2016, 2x Knight, 2x Father, Former Multi-Faith Minister, Award Winning Painter, Non-Profit Activist, Photographer, Graphics Design, Logo Design, Former Life Coach, 32 Degree Freemason, and honestly way more than I care to remember.


I have moved more than 30 times in the last ten years as a traveling writer, and that alone is a serious education. From Hawaii, Colorado, California, and Alaska, in just the last few years, I am really getting an idea of where the United States, and the visitors to the US from all over the World, are, in their personal developments. There is a massive awakening happening at the moment. More will be revealed in my next few books, one of which has already been written. I have also started writing a book about publishing a book, and becoming a Self-Published Author.  This will be published next.


I am a life-long student. My education will never be complete.


"Author Joe Holt (aka Aloha Joe) was born in Santa Barbara, California USA, in 1978. After living in orphanages, foster homes, two temporary adoptions, and a forced child labor camp, he signed to join the United States Marine Corps on his 17th birthday. His Asperger Spectrum of Autism, went un-diagnosed until he was 32 years old.

After two enlistments in the Marines as an Aviation Electrical Engineer, he had attained the rank of Sergeant, had served two tours overseas in Japan and South Korea, and had earned a National Defense Medal. A combination of military and off-duty injuries led to his medical retirement at the age of 23.

Author Joe Holt is the father of two sons, Joseph Jr. and Justin, and currently lives in Tennessee. He is a full-time writer, photographer, artist, and Ambassador of Aloha. Now, with nine books published, and a 10th currently in production, and all his first edition books moved into second editions, Author Joe Holt has become a prolific writer."
