Hi, I’m Paul J. Kenyon. I was born and raised in the city of Olean, NY. I have three children, Joseph, Karena and Noah, several grand children and one great granddaughter, Jordyn.
In 1975, I began writing my first book, but shelved the idea after moving to Arizona. With two small children, and setting up a new home, it was difficult to find the time to write.
In 2009, after moving back to New York, I decided to give writing another try. I was prompted to finish the book I had started in 1975 after visiting the property the story is about. “You Know They’re Here,” is a true accounts story of a haunted house and the family who lived through their ordeal of paranormal activity. Initially, the book was a personal achievement. There were no plans to pursue publishing my story until Clara M. Miller, mother of the family who experienced the haunting suggested I do after reading the story. On September 14, 2009, “You Know They’re Here” was published by Virtual Book Worm publishing.
In 2011, I published my first book of fiction, “Cold Secrets - The Challenge,” which is book one in a fictional series. The Challenge was self-published through CreateSpace on May 5, 2011. Book two, “Cold Secrets - Cleaning the Slate” is due out early spring 2013. This series tells the story of a retired police captain who moves from California to Kentucky. Vic Panada, undercover operative, was instrumental in removing corruption on the inside from the police force. It is a story of law enforcement, romance… and oh yes, a bit of the paranormal!
I’ve just finished writing, “Heart of Darkness,” which is the story of a serial killer, but not your garden variety serial killer. There are many twists, and turns adding to the graphic nature of the story. “Heart of Darkness” will also be self-published through CreateSpace on Valentine’s Day, 2013.
I write because I enjoy it. I’ve taken no formal writing classes, and I do the best I can to tell a story. I prefer to write of the darker side of life, although I do have a couple of romantic pieces, as well as other ideas I am working on.
I waited until I was 57 years old to write, and I hope you’ll take a look at my work!
