ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Paul Young was born in Melbourne, Australia, on the 17th March 1953. After leaving school he spent a couple of years in the opal fields of Lightning Ridge in New South Wales, before moving his home base to Brisbane, Queensland.
His upbringing and education were along traditional Christian lines, yet from an early age he was drawn to mysticism and Eastern religions. Initially this tendency manifested in his choice of reading materials and the poetry he wrote himself; increasingly it has become a focal point in practical life. Paul belongs to the Rosicrucian Fraternity known as AMORC and holds a number of qualifications:
• Certified as a level III Reiki practitioner (2002)
• Certificate IV in Palliative Care and Conscious Dying (2003)
• Diploma of the Writing School Australia (2003)
• Certified TEFL English Teacher (2008)
• Certified Law of Attraction Practitioner (2014)
• Certified NLP Practitioner (2014)
Paul's first book, The Sign of The Quatrefoil, was written without any formal training, but at the end of 2003 he obtained his Diploma from The Writing School of Sydney, with the intention of producing further books and magazine articles. In 2004 he self-published a novel titled ‘The Griffin in the Valley.’
A career in international trade and shipping has given him the opportunity to travel to many places in the world, and he has spent some years living and working in Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Thailand. These days he is easing into retirement from the corporate world and concentrating on his investigations into the paranormal and esoteric writings, with a particular emphasis on the relationship between humankind and the Sun.
