Hello, earthlings! I'm a scientist and children's author based in London, UK.
I finished my biology degree in 2003 and I then started work in clinical research (developing new medicines). I continued studying part-time and I have a Masters degree, a certificate in astronomy and I started my PhD in 2013. I very much enjoy my science career but I also have a real passion for writing stories!
I have learned a great deal from my PhD research which I'm currently undertaking (I need to start writing my thesis soon!). However, I've also been writing fiction on and off for ten years. I hope to be able to develop a series of books for children that are both enjoyable and educational.
My young nephew Hayden influenced my decision to become an author. I look forward to the day when my sister Michelle can read a story to him written by his Uncle Paul!
In my spare time I love going to new places and try to have as many holidays as possible. My partner Adrian and I absolutely love Scotland, especially the Isle of Skye. We also recently travelled to the Philippines which is a beautiful country, we can't wait to go back. We just got back from a wonderful holiday in Croatia too.
So that brings us to now... I'm currently working on several projects. My first short story, ENGELLA, is available now.
I'm also working on PRAXX AND THE RINGING ROBOT out soon. I hope you enjoy the stories as much as I enjoyed writing them!
