Paul has lived all over the country before settling in Appalachia over fifteen years ago with his wife Leslie and their son. He also has two adult children living in his native Pennsylvania. He is the author of two horror comedy novels, with a third one on the way from Madness Heart Press. Along with that he has published a novella and a collection of novelettes from St. Rooster Books, “A New Life” and “3Hits From the Holler.” His first full length collection, “What Is a Paddywack” published this May from Dreaming Big Publications. Paul is a member of the Horror Writers Association, appearing on panel for horror comedy at the 2021 Stoker Con. He has a dark and serious horror side, but he has also never answered the question, "Is everything a joke with you?" correctly once in his entire life.
