Paul Whitfield has lived a semi-nomadic life that began in Australia, before landing him in London in the mid-90s and then France, where he currently splits his time between the Eurostar and a village on the banks of the Seine just outside of Paris.
He has, mostly by accident, been a business journalist since 1997 and has written for Bloomberg, the BBC, the New York Times, a handful of British national newspapers and more recently U.S. news outlets The Deal and The Street.
Because his day job is so dreadfully serious he has long kept himself sane by drawing, painting and writing silly stories. His cartoons have appeared in U.K. magazines and he has exhibited paintings in galleries and bars in London and Paris.
Pirate McSnottbeard and the Zombie Terror Rampage is his first full-length novel for children, published by Walker in 2017, and Pirate McSnottbeard in the Alien Slug Invasion Panic will be published in July 2018.
Paul is married with two children and a vegetable patch.
