Hello. I am a writer called Paul Brown. Welcome to my website.
It’s basically a portfolio of recent work, plus an outlet for me to post quick pieces, bounce ideas around and plug my books. Hopefully you’ll find something of interest.
Other stuff? I’ve got a background in business and publishing. Some of my non-fiction work has been optioned by Hollywood. Book promotion has involved appearances on national radio and TV, including BBC Radio 5 Live, BT Sport and Premier League TV. I also created the popular alternative football competition the Unofficial Football World Championships.
I also write for several contract and business publishers, and provide writing and research services for businesses and individuals. If you need business writing or copywriting – for a press release, magazine article, website content, advertising copy, business plan, instructional factsheet or anything else – I can probably help. My writing CV and relevant clippings are available on request.
