About Paul James

Paul James grew tired of waiting for a literary agent or publisher to snap up his masterpiece so he began posting excerpts on social media and, when the reaction to those snippets was good, he published it himself (well, with a little help from his friends). He hopes you enjoy reading it as much as he enjoyed writing it.

Despite years of schooling and work in middle management, Paul can still see the funnier side of life. As well, living in central Canada with his wife and with the experience of raising two now grown-up and moved-out kids, he feels he can see both sides of any question – so much so that sometimes he can’t tell one side from the other.

Paul feels he understands enough of the English-speaking world’s concerns to comment on that in his writing because (1) he and his wife moved to Canada from Britain at a middling age and they still visit English family and friends frequently, (2) he has visited the USA a lot through vacations, his work and his children going to university there, and (3) through work and family visits, he has spent many months in Australia.

When Paul isn’t writing, he can be found reading, traveling, or outdoors with a camera looking to capture amazing images of landscapes and wildlife.

Review by: Daniel Bryan Jones on Feb. 10, 2017 :
The Diary of a Canadian Nobody is a noteworthy work of modern literature.Notwithstanding the foregoing, this exceptional book is easy to read and recommend for most ages.
i would have never have dreamed that being an implicit voyeur to another man's everyday existence could be so enthralling.
i started this amazing book yesterday afternoon around 500p.m and finished it this morning at 6:00a.m. what a ride!! The subject matter and the flow of the story line is capricious and ever-changing in a comfortable mercurial way.
i found the Lakelady's family dynamics surprisingly similar to my own, though my children are grown and my wife and i have both sowed our prospective oats.
the protagonist, Arthur Lakelady in Paul Jame's excellent comedy/satire is believable and is doomed to trials and consternation's.
i relate all to well what it,s like to watch the flower of youth fade to grey. if you give a myddle aged guy too much money,time or power he will get into travail every time. i had my own version of Arthur's Lydia after i hit it big in the real estate game.
in closing i would to congratulate Mr,James on this singular work.and moreover thank him for a job well done. i highly recommend this entertaining, uplifting read by James Paul,James
