Always an avid reader, he put pen to paper for the first time in 1999 and came very close to inking a deal with a small press. Due to circumstances unforeseen, this work has never been released, but it did give him a drive to achieve within the arts.
In the early 2000’s, he concentrated on music; writing song lyrics for his brother and his own bands. He was lead singer in a few rock bands during this time and still garners inspiration from music to this day. He gave up his musical aspirations in 2009.
In late 2012, he became unemployed and decided to make a serious attempt to make a name for himself as a writer. He went to work, penning several short stories and even dusting off the manuscript that had almost been published over a decade earlier. His efforts culminated in his first work being published in mid-2013, the flash fiction piece Smoke can be found in OzHorrorCon’s Book of the Tribes; A Tribute To Clive Barker’s Nightbreed.
2013 was a productive year as he released his short story Paradise Park in both J. Ellington Ashton’s All That Remains anthology and separate anthology, Thirteen vol 3. He also completed his debut novella in this time. Poor Jeffrey was released to much praise in February 2014. In July 2014 his short story Always Beneath was released as part of CHBB’s Dark Light Four anthology.
Paul continues to work on further material, including a follow-up novel to Poor Jeffrey named Architecture and a stand-alone novel The Uroboros Theorem. He remains in Sheffield, where he lives with his partner and two children. He consorts with his beta reading demons on a daily basis.
