Paul began writing in 1998, shortly after the birth of his daughter. His first short story, Amy, was written in November of that year, but went unpublished until November of 2013. That was when Paul found the courage to publish.
Despite the 15 year lag, Paul has written many unpublished works throughout the years. Linear Shift, Part 1 (September/2013) was his first published story, and was the kick off to his four part serial novel. Part 2 followed up in December of 2013, and Part 3 is planned for a May/2014 release.
Aside from his Linear Shift series, a number of Paul’s short stories have been included in anthologies. Amy, was included in “Something To Read On The Ride”. Lookout Mountain and Gold Rush were both included in “Something For The Journey”. His short story Alone has been submitted to another anthology, but has yet to be published.
When not writing, Paul is hard at work in the field of architecture. He has been in the field of design since 1992, and loves what he does. He lives with his wife and daughter in Littleton, Colorado, where he was born and raised.
I have been blogging on and off since the late 90’s, but not actively from mid 2005 thru mid 2012. I have a background in Architecture, and have owned my own residential design firm from 1997 thru 2006. My desire to design structures is strong.
Why do I always sound like a chump when I wrote about myself? That above paragraph blows!
Anyway, I have been playing around with writing since the mid 90’s, but nothing has ever come out of it. I have participated in NaNoWriMo for more years than I’d like to say, but actually hit 50,000 words for the first time in 2011. Go me! It was total garbage, but it does show that I can do it, regardless of what my inner self continues to tell me. Seriously, I try not to listen too much to the voices inside…
Beyond writing as a hobby (hopefully to be come a career someday), I enjoy hiking in the mountains. I enjoy fishing (although I do not fish half as often as I would like). I enjoy building things from wood. I love sports, specially football (Go Bronco’s!). I live in one of the best towns in the nation (Littleton, CO) with my wife, teenage daughter and 2 cats.
What will you find here on my blog? All sorts of stuff! I will write about writing mostly. I will write about life, and how I feel about things that affect my own. I will most likely not write about politics or religion too much, as I feel everyone deserves their own opinion of them and nobody should challenge my own thoughts and beliefs. I will write about my hiking, as well as our family travels. I will also post the occasional photo, as I am an amateur photographer. Just click on one of the menu’s above for quick links to some of my writing and photography work.
If you would like to contact me, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (yes, I scuba dive, and I love it!), I look forward to hearing from you.
