Looking Back

It's New Year's Eve, and as I write this I'm having a glass of wine and looking at my two little daughters. They're just two and a half weeks old, and I'm utterly in love with them.

To say 2012 was a good year would be an understatement. Not only did my wife delivery two beautiful baby girls, but I got to realise my lifelong dream with the release of my first novel, Locked Within.

2013 will see us raise Amy and Erica through their first year, with all the exhaustion and happiness that brings. It'll also see the release of my second novel, the sequel to Locked Within. I'm looking forward to finding out what's in store for us, and hope everyone else has a great year. If 2012 was kind to you, may 2013 give even more. If it was a hard year, may the new year bring you peace and joy instead.

Happy new year to all my readers, and here's to all the adventures yet to come.


  1. Wishing you and your new family every happiness in the New Year, Paul -- here's to making it a good one! :)

  2. Congratulations on a successful year. I hope 2013 tops it for you! Love looking at the pictures of those beautiful girls, I can see why you're already in love with them! Best of luck this year to you and your wife.

  3. So happy for your happiness! Wishing you an even more wonderful year in 2013.

  4. Congratulations!!!! We just had our third - a girl - in August. It's so wonderful. And the books are exciting too. :D

  5. Thank you, everyone. I think it's so cool that my girls will be able to go to school and say "My daddy's a writer." :-D

    I should get to work writing my third book soon. I don't know when the edits will start on Book 2, so the more hard work I can get done before I need to focus on those, the better.

  6. And congratulations to you, too, Lisa!

  7. 2012 WAS good for you. Congrats on the new ones.

    Happy New Year!
