Paul Buckley

Biography

Paul Buckley has written more than twenty books some of which are available in ebook formats. Paul passed away in 2017. He lived most of his life in Palmerston North, New Zealand, a small city with a long name, a city that is well worth visiting. This is the place where the City Fathers constantly shift their river around to stop it flooding. Things he liked: rainbows, walking in warm rain, the sounds of strong wind, shared laughter, traveling on trains, surprising photos, hot nights, generous acts and thoughtfulness. Note to travelers, Palmerston North is in the North Island and not to be confused with Palmerston, a tiny town in the South Island of New Zealand.
