Paul Burman was born in Northamptonshire, England, but currently lives in Port Fairy, Australia.

He’s worked in a wine-bottling factory, a deep freeze, a plumbing warehouse, the Post Office; he’s been an English teacher, a shop assistant, a maize ‘castrator’ in the south of France, and he once had a newspaper round until a neighbour’s dog bit him.

As a child, he lied about his age to become a Beefeater at the Tower of London, but was sent to school instead, where he spent many years failing to escape.

That he’s been compulsively reading and writing fiction from the age of 6 may be the result of a childhood indiscretion, in which he was caught inadvertently telling the truth. Making up stories has remained a happy obsession ever since.

In 2017, he established Windeye Publishing.

Paul Burman is an author of novels, short stories, miscellaneous articles and the occasional play. In 2017, he established Windeye Publishing.
"Beginning a story is like wandering into an unknown forest. The adventure lies in the path that gradually reveals itself and in not knowing what you'll discover along the way."
