Paul used to write stories when he was at school but gave up all that nonsense to pursue an academic career. He trained as a historian and was briefly a university lecturer before discovering that growing organic vegetables and living in the countryside agreed with him more. Some years later he moved with his partner and children to a cabin in the French Pyrenees where, with no money to start rebuilding the ruined house next door, he started to write stories again. He's been writing ever since: lots of short stories, flash fiction, a science fiction novel, and a climate fiction novella. At the moment Paul lives with his family on a new smallholding in West Wales.

When did you start writing?

2007 St Girons, France

What do you love about Short Stories?

I love short stories because whole worlds can be evoked and ideas explored in a condensed form. The challenge is to be concise to the benefit of the tale.

Do you write in other forms?

I have written a novel and a novella, along with a very few poems.

What distracts you from writing?

Work and other necessities.

Outside of writing, what are your other passions?

My family, practising Tai chi, gardening, and following a sadly unsuccessful football team.

What is your favourite book?

Cider House Rules by John Irving

Who are your favourite writers?

Iain M Banks, Orhan Pamuk and JRR Tolkien

Where is your dream location?

Barcelona, 1936.

What one item would you put into Room 101?


Do you have any advice for new writers?
