Paul is the author of the children’s book, Time Traveller Danny and the Codebreaker, a time travel adventure that takes Danny Higgins into the secret world of Bletchley Park during World War II, where he meets Alan Turing. The book is part of the Time Traveller series, published by Stockport’s Seven Arches Press.
Paul has a very particular interest in writing a book featuring Alan Turing; his father was a practising lawyer and witnessed Alan Turing’s will when he lived in the town of Wilmslow, a few miles south of Manchester. Paul is himself a lawyer, but he has taken a break to follow his passion for writing. Although this is his first published book, his personal interest in this misunderstood genius provides readers with an exciting celebration of the brilliant man’s life.
I’ll be chatting to Paul about the book and his writing, and about Alan Turing. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
