Paul Gray


My name is Paul Gray. I'm an amateur author, poet and musician. I live in South Carolina in a house I built myself (with my own hands). Well... my girlfriend at the time helped me a lot.

For almost twenty years I supplemented my writing income with a tedious little job about four months each year. That job required me to be a nuclear health physics technician and it is a job at which I was not an amateur. I traveled the country assisting in the refueling of nuclear power plants and wait... before you ask, no I don't glow in the dark. :P Today, I'm an over the road truck driver. I'm amazed at how driving stimulates my creative juices.

I've always aspired to be a writer. I started writing fictional stories (not lies) when I was 11 years old. Writing is an outlet for me. I have an opinion on most subjects and I enjoy voicing those opinions. Writing allows me to be more articulate where my opinions are concerned. Fiction writing allows me to export those opinions as a merge of reality and fantasy. Some of the fictional situations that I write about contain experiences that I have dealt with first hand. Don't panic! An equal number of things I write are simply conjugations of creative cognition.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town in South Carolina. I was very bashful as a child. My parents were very strict and didn't tolerate any foolishness from children so I pretty much kept to myself and I think that was a very big influence where my imagination is concerned.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing stories when I was 11 years old. I was in the sixth grade and my teacher encouraged us to write.
