Hello. I am a writer called Paul Brown. Welcome to my website.
I’ve written several books, including football titles Savage Enthusiasm and The Victorian Football Miscellany, and true crime title The Rocketbelt Caper. I curated the Messages from the Sea book, and published longform history titles From a Blood-Red Sea and Sins Dyed in Blood as Amazon Kindle singles.
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.
