My Work

Paul has written several novels as P. C. DETTMANN and Paul Charles. His first two, From Beyond Belief and Kicking Tin, were speculative fiction. In recent years he has written espionage and crime novels such as Locksley and Ernest Zevon, as well as Ogham Forest, a story series for children. Paul has also written screenplays and journalism, and is available to hire as a ghostwriter.


I’m Paul. I grew up in Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire. I went to university in Manchester, England where I wrote From Beyond Belief and Kicking Tin, two speculative fiction stories that become less speculative each year. My novel King’s Town may one day be finished.

On 2nd February 2002 I published my first eBook. It was a terrible business decision. Nobody had a Kindle because they were invented in 2007. Luckily I write because I enjoy it, whenever and wherever I can.

In 2020, I am embarking on a podcast adventure with Library Discoveries and publishing a number of books to Audible.
