About Paul Kijinski

Paul Kijinski is the author of the novel CAMP LIMESTONE, a winner of the 2007 Paterson Prize for Books for Young Readers, and other works of middle grade fiction. THE 11:15 BENCH is his first novel for adult readers.

Kijinski was born in Garfield Heights, Ohio, and earned degrees from Oberlin College, The Ohio State University, and John Carroll University. He began writing seriously while serving as a missile officer in the U.S. Air Force. The solitude of underground launch control centers provided a uniquely rich environment for putting pen to paper. His final assignment in the military was teaching English at the Air Force Academy.

Kijinski is currently an elementary school teacher in South Euclid, Ohio. He and his wife, Eileen, have two adult sons.
