Author Biography

In 2007 the author was the financial controller for the largest Bahamian exporter while living on both Grand Cayman and Grand Bahama Islands. This followed years in the automotive manufacturing industry as well as a decade of buying and selling new and used books, comic books, magazines, baseball cards and other products…as well as many other jobs. Faced with a choice of what to do for the future…stay with island life or move on…a decision was made to become an author with the intent to create products designed for big budget movies.

The first product conceived was actually UnManifest Destiny but the author knew that something different had to be the first product. Painless and the Less Trilogy (Blindless, Timeless) were born.

Painless was market tested and more products were created as well as the Corporation X Business Plan. Along the way The Byzantine Pineapple developed tying together a lifetime of concepts and ideas into an actual plan to perform global social good by presenting Social, Economic, Legal, and Political reforms that citizens of countries can understand and buy off on.

The author currently lives with a brother in Jacksonville, FL, where they take care of their 94 year old mother while creating products and building Corporation X. More information can be found on the website

    Book Review

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

Our story begins with Augustus "Aug" Valentine, the President of Trove Import-Export. Aug is mugged. The culprits make off with the precious jewels he smuggled into the country. The event draws Aug deep into organized crime. Basically they want to do him in.

Painless is not a quick read. The plot is complex. There are many subplots and characters all taking place at once. Bill Poje is a master at multitasking. He successfully brings the plots and characters together to create a mystery that will keep readers on the edge of their seat. Poje refers to his book as modern noir genre. This is the perfect description of Painless for Aug finds himself embroiled in what seems to be a hopeless situation. He has to overcome the force threatening to take him down. I know a good book when I read one and this book is not good it is great. Aug is an exquisite character. He is handsome, a slick ladies man. He thinks fast on his feet.

Poje has included a sexy bombshell named, Jocelyn. The intimate scenes are steamy. Ah, but he doesn't stop there, Poje includes a hurricane. This book is fast paced and will keep readers eagerly turning the pages. This book contains a lot of sex, violence and adult language.


This is an amazing story, quick read, lotsa fun! Highly recommended.

I thought the book started out with the best first line I have read in a long time. Mr Poje has created a story that once it got started it never stopped. I could not put the book down!

I was caught up in the book from page one. I stayed up late into the night because I couldn't put it down. I finished it in 3 days! I have recommended it to several people, however they will have to buy their own as mine is personalized by the author himself. Well done Poj!!!
