Hello! I am Joey Kirby, author of Sword Hax, and plenty of other books to come in the future.
If you've read my book, you likely picked up on the fact I love anime. Trigun, Bleach, DBZ, and many others. I love to attend anime conventions such as Otakon in Baltimore and Katsucon in Washington DC. Maybe one day I'll have my own panel at one of those! If you're curious, I have cosplayed as Aizen from Bleach and Hiroki Sugimura from Battle Royale in the past.
I also love video games. Nintendo has always been my favorite company, but I'll play other stuff too. Right now I'm going through a phase where I just wanna play handheld games. Just spent a few months with Persona 4 Golden on the Playstation Vita. Wonderful ... read more

First there were crayon drawings in grade school, then books of space travel, mysteries and espionage. I've always carried stories in my head and written them down. In college, my aunt sent me a box of books, including Kathleen Woodiwiss' "The Flame and the Flower". I caught Romance fever and never looked back. Now with several books and awards to my credit, I continue to write and promote books that lift the Spirit.
When I'm not writing, I enjoy needlework, bird watching, traveling, and jigsaw puzzles. I'm an avid fan of romance in all its variety, and my favorite diversion is a well-written book with a happy ending.

Born in the mining valleys of South Wales during the early 1940s during the Second World War when life was hard for everyone. I am prepared to admit that during my school days I was not too bright at most subjects but proud to admit that when it came to maths there was no other child that could match me; I am sure that I inherited that from my father to be honest. After leaving school I carried on through college studying to be an engineer, mechanical and production. Following a back injury I was forced to retire from my position as an engineer and after a few years started to make a recovery so as to take a less stressful employment as a taxi driver. I stuck that job for 30 years until retirement. Following a ... read more

God woke Paul up numerous times, in the early morning hours, giving him specific details on what to put in the book. In addition to his new “writing career”, Paul also enjoys wildlife photography and has traveled to Central and South America photographing God’s magnificent wildlife creations.
