As a widely published, free-lance writer with a strong audience in Europe, Paola has studied unidentified aerial phenomena since 1979 and is on personal terms with leading researchers in the field. From 1980-1986 Dr. J. Allen Hynek entrusted her with his UFO investigations outside the United States. She has published interviews of many military witnesses concerning their experiences. In particular, in 1997, Ms. Harris interviewed Colonel Philip Corso in New Mexico and became his editor and confidante. She was instrumental in having his book, The Day After Roswell, for which she wrote the preface, translated into Italian. She also wrote the Italian Preface for Apollo14 Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell’s book The Way of the Explorer.

The subject of UFOs has fascinated Martin Willis since his youth, yet he was on the fence about the subject. He experienced a personal sighting in 2007 in Carmel Valley, CA, that solidified his beliefs that Unidentifiable Flying Objects really do exist. Since this time, Martin has paid attention to what others have to say about the phenomenon with some skepticism, yet an open mind. Pondering what UFOs may actually be, pushed his interest to another level. Martin thinks we may never find out what UFOs/UAP are, but it is the most important and exciting puzzle yet to solve.
Martin has an interest in astronomy, feels we are not alone and always maintained a strong scientific fascination of our vast universe. As a UFO enthusiast, Martin created Podcast UFO in November, 2011 with over 500 show interviews. Martin was the Keynote Speaker at the 2022 Pine Bush UFO Conference. Martin is a long time professional antiques and fine art appraiser. Martin is also producer of Podcast UFO and YouTube Channel, ‘Keep your eyes to the sky’
