Hello. I am a writer called Paul Brown. Welcome to my website.
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 maintain the Goal Post Victorian Football website and also created the popular alternative football competition the Unofficial Football World Championships.
