JL Paul


I've been writing for years mostly as a hobby. I read constantly, although I'm pretty particular about what I read. I do not have a website for my work yet (yeah, I know, what is wrong with me, right?) but once I do, I'll post the link here.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I read a variety of genres for pleasure. I especially enjoy Stephen King, Dennis Lehane, John Grisham, and Dean Koontz. I like something that grabs me immediately and keeps me turning the pages. I love to reread my favorite books, too, especially the Harry Potter series.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Right now it's the Nook.
