Taking a break
Tomorrow kicks off the A to Z Blogging Challenge, when the blogosphere explodes in people furiously keeping pace with the demands of writing one blog post a day (except for Sundays). I know I promised I'd have some Hero's Jou...

What are you reading?
Today is World Book Day! I can't think of something that's brought more undiluted joy into my life than books and stories, so the idea of a day just to celebrate books is at once exciting and, I admit, confusing. Why isn't ev...

Leonard Nimoy
Like most of us, I was saddened by the news of Lenoard Nimoy's death on Friday.  I grew up on Star Trek, and as a kid Spock was my favourite character. I can still remember a plush Spock doll I had, which I held onto until ...

Lady Raven is back in print!
Today the internet is exploding with news that Spider-Man is returning to Marvel Studios, and will feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So I'm expecting my news to be completely overshadowed. But what the hell, it's been...

Parents :-)
Today is my Dad's birthday, and this Sunday is Mother's Day, so I thought this would be a good time to pause for a moment and say how much I love my parents. Sure we've had our disagreements, but they've always had my back, e...

Onwards and Upwards:
We're nicely settled into 2015 now, and it's definitely set to be a busy, but productive, year for me. My freelance editing work is moving along. I'd like to get some more clients, so if you guys know anyone looking for an ed...

As we get to the release of arguably the most controversial movie adaptation of a book ever, I'm talking about authors being honest in their decisions:

The new cover for Lady Raven is here:
A couple of months ago I pulled the print edition of Lady Raven from sale because I'd made mistakes with the cover design that I hadn't realised, such as the trim dimensions I'd chosen. This necessitated the development of an...

Introduction
A child at heart who turned to writing and roleplaying games when there simply weren't enough action figures to play out the stories he wanted, Paul Anthony Shortt has been writing all his life.

Growing up surrounded by music, film and theatre gave him a deep love of all forms of storytelling, each teaching him something new he could use. When not playing with the people in his head, he enjoys cooking and regular meet-ups with his gaming group.

He lives in Ireland with his wife Jen and their dogs, Pepper and Jasper. Their first child, Conor William Henry Shortt, was born on July 11th, 2011. He passed away three days later, but brought love and joy into their lives and those of their friends. Jen is pregnant again and is expecting twins.
