Paul Kennedy was born and bred in Liverpool.
After working as a reporter, chief reporter, and News Editor for the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo, he moved on to national newspapers working for both the News of the World and The People.
Fed-up of spending all day sat outside the houses of “C” and often “D” list celebrities, Paul left the North West of England to work as News Editor on an evening paper in Cheltenham.
The Carpet King of Texas is his debut novel. Paul lives in Stroud with his partner Karen and two cats, Vince and Dave.
He currently freelances for national newspapers in between writing his second book.
