Paul Whybrow

Ex many occupations, from the respectable 'career ladder' to disreputable "somebody's-got-to-do-it". All a good way of seeing someone else's point of view. Best job, apart from writing, was dispatch-riding on a motorcycle in the 1970s, though I've also enjoyed teaching, librarianship, counselling and helping to run a community centre. Worst job - you really don't want to know, but it was in a processed food manufacturer's factory - put me off bacon, sausages and quiches for a long time, and made me look at pet food differently. I've been writing since I was eight, when I penned a story about a desert island and attempted to compile a dictionary. I've written for magazines under a variety of pen names, ghostwritten a couple of biographies and had a column in a local newspaper. I used to concentrate on non-fiction of an instructional nature, as I'm a firm believer in the dissemination of information to enable people to do things for themselves. Knowledge is power, and in these troubled times of economic recession and increased intrusion into our lives by government agencies, its vital to know how to get through. My fictional stories also show people coping and finding ways to survive. I began writing eBooks under the pen-name of Augustus Devilheart. Both names have strong ancestral connections, but it was pointed out to me by several female friends that this moniker may be frightening some readers away. Hence, I've reverted to my own name of Paul Whybrow. I'm based in a Celtic nation, the county of Cornwall or Kernow. I've been here for thirty years, and have lived all over the country, as well as abroad - in France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain and the U.S.A. After writing short stories, novellas, poetry and song lyrics, I've spent the last five years penning a series of crime novels called The Cornish Detective. I began publishing them on KDP Select and Unlimited in the summer of 2019. I read that during lockdown, audiobook sales rose by 34%, so I devoted most of 2020 to narrating, recording, editing and mastering my five Cornish Detective titles, as well as the first two stories of another series about Art Palmer, an American Civil War veteran. These are available on Audible: I was pleased to see that they sold well, but to promote them, I commissioned a video trailer for the first crime novel, Who Kills A Nudist?
