About Bill Goodwin

Bill Goodwin is one of the world's experts on travel to Fiji and the South Pacific. Before falling in love with the islands, he traveled widely as a decorated officer in the U.S. Navy and was an award-winning newspaper reporter for the Atlanta Journal, which sent him to Washington, D.C., as a political correspondent. He then served as legal counsel and speechwriter for two influential U.S. senators-Sam Nunn of Georgia and the late Sam Ervin of North Carolina. In 1977, he and a friend sailed a 41-foot yacht from Annapolis, Maryland, to Tahiti. He left the boat in Papeete and, with girlfriend and backpack, spent more than a year exploring French Polynesia, American Samoa, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, New Zealand, and Australia. After another stint with Senator Nunn and a year in Hawaii, he researched and wrote the first edition of Frommer's South Pacific in 1986-87. He also is the author of Frommer's Tahiti & French Polynesia and, at home, Frommer's Virginia. Visit him at www.billgoodwin.com.show more
