Paul is originally from the Midlands area of the United Kingdom. Having trained as a librarian he finished his career as an Assistant Director at a large college in Birmingham, effectively retiring at the age of fifty.
He has two grown up sons and divides his time between the UK and Spain.
He has had a long held love affair with poetry enjoying over the years the poets such as Walt Whitman, Leonard Cohen, Bukowski, Rod Mckuen, the Beat and the Liverpool poets. This with a combined appreciation of all things books, music, film, travel and playing guitar/writing songs is how he likes to spend his free time. Now that time includes a love of writing and exploring a long time hidden creative streak.
Under Spanish skies is his first book of poetry.
