About Me

Been writing and designing in a professional capacity (in the advertising field) for more years than I care to admit, but am newer to fiction. Also have a long-standing interest in photography. Most of my stories have accompanying photographs.

Why do you write?

The pleasure of contemplating a piece of finished work that feels right.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Tend to read older works and classics but also enjoy non-fiction involving human development and a variety of science disciplines.

Paul so happy you read my stories Chocolate and Organic BJ's and the kind words you had for them both, thank you!
ps-- did you notice that you were drawn to the ones about food? maybe you felt hungry while you were looking at this site? ha ha! i saw in your bio that you wrote for advertising, and of course that deals with subliminal prompts, so...
would love to see your photos. why not post them along with your stories, some writers have been doing that here and its nice.

Susan Tepper – Feb 12, 2011

Paul, I used to have one many years ago, and yes, they are totally scratchy, and as she was rubbing her face in the blanket I was feeling the scratch. Don't know why I wrote "soft" but I'm changing that word and I appreciate your bringing this to my attention.

Susan Gibb – Sep 16, 2010

Hi Paul!

Yes, I do it myself, only my twists, if planned, come out amateurish. Often the best twist is one that surprises me after I've written it. Then I know it's okay to leave in. With the amount of writing I've done lately, I've gotten a bit lazy in repairing the ones that don't work. To me, if it wraps up too easy, too contrived, then it's not going to be good.

Rhett Davis – Sep 12, 2010

Hi Paul - thanks for taking the time to read "At the back of the crowd" and providing some great feedback.

Jack Swenson – Aug 20, 2010

Paul, I have lots of good memories of that old house on Ridgewood Av. in south Minneapolis, the setting for "Ornithology." Thanks for reading & adding a note.

Darryl Price – Aug 20, 2010
