Born in the Year of the Tiger, Paul's natural curiosity combined with the deep-seated feline need to roam has meant that over the years he's never been able to call any one place home. His wanderlust has led him from one town to another, and even from one country to another.
He has always followed his instincts without question or complaint, and in true cat fashion it seems he has always landed on his feet.
"I can't remember a time when I didn't write - my father claims to possess a story I wrote when I was six, which filled 4 standard school exercise books! What I do remember from that time was being told off for doing the Liverpool Echo crossword before he got home from work! Perhaps it was the catalyst of breathing the same air as Hans Christian Andersen. While I was living in Denmark, I allowed myself to be persuaded to write for a purpose in-stead of purely for my own amusement."
Paul recently released the first volume of a planned Trilogy, Mystery/Romance set in Ireland, "The Chapel of Her Dreams" [also with Whimsical Publications, under the name Paul Freeman]. Other works currently seeking an outlet include a couple of plays and a WWII sub-hunt thriller ... and a Rock Musical intended for children.
