About Paul Douglas Lovell

Raised by my father, the youngest of five, I spent many hours ‘Playing Out’. My school years were disruptive. Seen as an inconvenience standing in-between my freedom and the big wide world. Uneducated and somewhat troubled I went to London.

I spent twelve years working as a rent-boy (a male prostitute) I did some travelling and met some interesting people.

In 2000, whilst in Ibiza I found a husband (civil partner) and a new chapter in my life began.

After the death of my father I plucked up the courage to tell my tale. My lifetime ambition to become an author, realised in ‘Paulyanna International Rent-Boy’.

Gone are the pressures of Big City Life nowadays, I enjoy the small pleasures in life.
I live in a detached property set in the foothills of the Jura mountains. I am surrounded on all sides by hills and trees, a small stream runs through the centre of the village. My own piece of paradise, one that inspires me to try my hand at writing haiku poetry. I also enjoy geo-caching, gardening, reading, designing graphics and listening to music.
