Joey Paul


Joey Paul is a writer, exploring the young adult crime genre. She has released seven books in total so far, but plans to write more. She is currently working on her thirteenth and fourteenth books. Her current works include the series "Dying Thoughts" and she plans to continue that for at least eight books, maybe more. Her other works are usually books about the many trials and tribulations of being a teenager, sometimes with a crime twist.
Joey is disabled and a recent graduate from The Open University with a BA (Hons) in Health & Social Care. When not reading medical textbooks, she enjoys reading crime novels, medical dramas and chick-lit. When not reading, she relaxes by playing the ukulele. When she's out and about, she likes looking for Tupperware in the woods with GPS satellites, otherwise known as geocaching! And when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping! She's 33 and has been writing since she was retired from her job on medical grounds at the age of 19. She plans to write for as long as she has ideas or until someone tells her to stop!

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I like to read both young adult and adult crime/mystery books. I'm also fond of "Chick Lit" and the occasional romance. I have embraced the electronic age and now have most of my books on my Kindle. The authors I like to read most are Harlan Coben, Sue Grafton, Kathy Reichs and Karin Slaughter, Sophie Kinsella and Jill Mansell. I love to read, it's where my love of writing comes from. I like to be able to enter a whole new world that the author has created and just explore along with the characters.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Kindle Fire, and have always used either the Kindle app on Android or the Kindle range of hardware. In the past I have used iTunes when I had a different phone, but I prefer the Kindle range. So many books to read, such little time to explore and read them.
