Hello. Thanks for swinging by and visiting my blog. In case the website address wasn’t enough, I’m Paul Duffau.
This is the section where everybody sticks the boring biographical info – though some try to juice it up with humor or some sense of “literary” style, I’m going to stick with boring….
My day job, the one that pays the bills, has me climbing on, over, around and under houses figuring out what is right and wrong with them and letting the buyers get the dream house they expected. Along the way, I’ve gotten acquainted with every good and dumb idea a homeowner has ever had – and more than a passing knowledge of spiders and bugs and bats, critters who inhabit a crawlspace or attic.
I started writing because a story got stuck in my head and it was getting in the way of going for runs. I was an avid runner, had been for years and noticed that, with few exceptions, there were no fiction books that involve running. So having an ego nearly -but not quite – the size of Texas, I thought I would fill the gap. The first book, Finishing Kick, was published in December of 2013, available in print, audio, and the ebook format of your choice. The second book came out in July of 2014, Trail of Second Chances.
Writing turned out to be even more addicting that running. A story I never intended to write took control and the Accidental Hero series was born. Book 1, Got To Be A Hero, is available now. Book 2, Stand Your Ground, Hero, is nearing complete and should be out later this year (2017).
I also like dogs – or, at least, they really like me. Which is a good thing since I’m married to the director of the local Humane Society. You’ll see occasional posts about them.
Enough….I’ll see you in posts.
Have a truly wonderful day! Run Gently….
