Paul Anthony is the pseudonym of a man born in Southport, Lancashire. He began his writing career when he was published by a vanity publisher in the UK. Two years later, he accepted a commission from a renown traditional publisher and sharpened his pen. However, with the passage of time, he now describes himself as an independent publisher and author responsible for every facet of his ‘book business’, including the conversion of his backlist included on these pages. He has written a number of fictional novels, an autobiography, and a collection of poetry in Print and Kindle. He has also written television scripts, screenplays and film scripts. Paul is best known for his crime thrillers which feature 1) Boyd – a detective from Cumbria who is seconded to the nation’s Special Crime Unit and 2) Davies King – a detective from Crillsea, on the south coast. Boyd and King are completely different characters but both series regularly reach best-seller status in Amazon’s kindle store due to a well-presented formula of serious and serial crime, true crime, murder-mystery, terrorism and espionage.
Paul is the son of a soldier whose family settled in Carlisle before he joined Cumbria police at the age of 19. As a detective, he served in Cumbria CID, the Regional Crime Squad in Manchester, the Special Branch, (Counter Terrorist Command) and other national agencies in the UK and elsewhere. He has an Honours Degree in Economics and Social Sciences, a Diploma in Management and a Diploma in Office Management.
A former winner of the Independent Authors Network Featured Author Contest, Paul was also a Featured Author at the ‘Books without Borders’ Event in Yonkers, New York, 2012. In earlier years he was a Featured Author at the Frankfurt Book Fair, Germany.
His books are available from all amazon kindle stores (including kindle unlimited) as well in print from lulu.com. Paul also has a blogsite where publishing news, author interviews, and various ‘thrillers’ by his fellow authors are promoted and available. Check out ‘links’ above for more information. Thank you.
