Spinetingler Award nominee Paul D. Brazill was born in Hartlepool, England- yes, the place where they hung the monkey.
He is currently on the lam in Bydgoszcz, Poland. He's lived in Warsaw, London and - for one scorchio summer - Madrid.
He started writing short stories at the end of 2008 and since then his stuff has appeared in loads of classy print and electronic magazines and anthologies like Noir Nation,A Twist Of Noir, Beat To A Pulp, Crime Factory, Pulp Ink,Dark Valentine, Needle, Powder Burn Flash, Thrillers, Killers n Chillers & Radgepacket Volumes Four & Five.
He writes an irregular column for Pulp Metal Magazine and he has a story included in the 2011 Mammoth Book Of Best British Crime. His short story collection '13 Shots Of Noir' will be out sometime this year, so it looks like he's getting away with something.
