Paul Finch is a former cop and journalist, now turned full time writer. He first cut his literary teeth penning episodes of the British TV crime drama, The Bill, and has written extensively in the field of children's animation. However, he is probably best known for his work in horror.
To date, he's had ten books and nearly 300 stories and novellas published on both sides of the Atlantic. His first collection, Aftershocks, won the British Fantasy Award in 2002, while he won the award again in 2007 for his novella, Kid. Later in 2007, he won the International Horror Guild Award for his mid-length story, The Old North Road. Most recently, he has written two Doctor Who audio dramas for Big Finish and is now busy writing a third. His no-holds-barred cop novel, The Nice Guys' Club, will be published later this year.
Paul lives in Wigan, Lancashire, with his wife Cathy and his children, Eleanor and Harry.
