Hi there, I'm Paul and I'm passionate about storytelling and creativity. A bit of a mish-mash my background is Scottish, Welsh and Persian. I was born in the UK, spent my first few years in California and grew up in Australia. I've travelled the world (mostly in my 20s) and now live in Canada with my wife and two children.

I like to write dramatic magical realism, fantasy and a little bit of sci-fi. I write in a lyrical way and I'm learning to not overdo things! A lot of my work centres around family.  I hope you'll read some of my flash and short stories. I'd love to hear what you think and read your works too.

I've mostly worked in marketing roles but have done quite a lot over the years including launching my own games startup with friends. I'm a huge fan of interactive fiction and have dabbled a little here recently with the story Shadowcast. I've worked on pioneering digital executions, particularly in gaming, interactive fiction and digital brand engagements. Check out some creative consulting projects I've worked on.

In 2017 I've set a goal of reading 25 novels, at least 200 short stories and also doing a lot of my own creative writing. Got a novel I've been meaning to write for the past twenty years or so!
