Paul has been writing puzzles for many years. Equally intrigued by anagrams and word puzzles, mathematical conundrums, logical enigmas and lateral thinking problems, Paul enjoys solving puzzles almost as much as setting them.
Born and bred in Yorkshire, he has had a varied career, being an accountancy trainee, and astronomy student in Newcastle and Edinburgh, a post-doc physics researcher in Oxford, a businessman in the packaging trade in Bradford and a personal tutor in Ilkley, but throughout it all his fascination with puzzles has remained undimmed.
He still gives talks on Astronomy, plays racketball badly and has a fondness for real ale. He lives in Yorkshire with his lovely Scottish wife and ageing dog.
