Paul Burman

Author of 'The Snowing and Greening of Thomas Passmore' (2008) and 'The Grease Monkey's Tale' (2010)

Paul was born in Northamptonshire, England, but currently lives in Victoria, Australia. He's worked in a wine-bottling factory, a deep freeze, a plumbing warehouse, the Post Office, as well as being a maize 'castrator' in the south of France - and he once had a newspaper round until a neighbour's dog bit him. Having decided to never become a teacher, he became a teacher and has been learning how to teach English and Literature ever since. He has been compulsively reading and writing fiction from the age of six - which 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.
