Meet the Author

Ex many occupations,from the respectable 'career-ladder' to disreputable "somebody's- got- to- do- it". All a good way of seeing someone else's point-of-view. Best job,apart from writing, was dispatch-riding on a motorcycle in the 70's,though I've also enjoyed teaching,librarianship,counselling and helping to run a community-centre. Worst job - you really don't want to know,but it was in a processed food manufacturer's factory - put me off bacon,sausages and quiches for a long time,and made me look at pet-food in a new way.
I've been writing since I was eight,when I penned a story about a desert island and attempted to compile a dictionary - as Clarissa does in ' The Moon Is Out Tonight'. I've written for magazines under a variety of pen-names,ghost-written a couple of biographies and had a column in a local newspaper..
I used to concentrate on non-fiction of an informative,how-to instructional nature,as I'm a firm believer in the dissemination of knowledge to enable people to do things for themselves. Knowledge is power,and in these troubled times of economic down-turn and increased intrusion into our lives by government agencies its vital to know how to get through. My fictional stories also show people coping and finding ways to survive.
I began writing ebooks under the pen-name of Augustus Devilheart. Both names have strong ancestral connections,but it was pointed out to me by several female friends that this moniker may be frightening some readers away. Hence,I've reverted to my own name of Paul Whybrow.
I'm based in a Celtic nation,the county of Cornwall or Kernow. I've been here for twenty years,and have lived all over the country,as well as abroad - in France,Germany,Switzerland,Spain and the U.S.A.
