OK now for his real biography:
Paul began with a hardscrabble existence as a street rat on the grim and grimy roof tops and dank and dangerous alleyways of Agrabah … ah … no … wrong story. I’ll come in again.
Born in a sleepy, little Alabama town, nestled in the crook of the Tennessee River, Paul began telling stories as soon as he could walk. Indeed, in his formative years, when friends were otherwise engaged, he roamed the nearby woods, spinning yarns to himself. Not that is in anyway creepy.
He was first published in the National Junior Achievement Magazine, winning a writing contest for the best short story describing JA in the future. In 1987, he won the Excellence Award for Best Radio Documentary from the Society of Professional Journalists and went on for a thirteen year (he says fifteen, but it is actually thirteen) career in radio and television.
However, the lure of easy money chasing the Y2K bug was more than he could bear. In 1998, he succumbed to his darker nature and left broadcasting for the murky world of Information Technology.
In 2008, those pent up creative forces erupted and Paul found himself writing again,this time with the now defunct Sord & Sworcery, Science Fiction & Fantasy APA. Then, one day while listening to the Dead Robots Society, he heard about an open call for a cross genre anthology, and Jack Dupre was born.
Along the way, Paul fast talked a normally sensible young woman into marrying him. They reside, with their three daughters, square in the middle of the Virginian Piedmont.
Paul’s first published short story, “The Winds,” is part of “Dirty Magick: Los Angeles” – an anthology exploring the crossroads between urban fantasy and noir; mean streets, dirty magic! Available for Kindle and Nook.
