Hailing from suburban Chicago, David Pauly went to high school with Ferris Bueller, though he never got a ride in the Ferrari. College at UW Madison, was awesome; 10 beers for a dollar, 80’s miniskirts, and a total den of iniquity, but his History degree meant straight to food service flipping pizzas. Poverty was unappealing, with no Ferrari in sight, so law school was the next stop, before relocating to New Mexico. Within the Land of Enchantment David was briefly bemused by the sunny skies and spicy food of New Mexico, until the state’s nickname, Land of Entrapment, truly revealed itself. David was surrounded by angry slackers, financing their tattoos by disconnecting their utilities, subjected to a horrible sound emanating from cheap speakers; Grunge. David’s only escape from this sandy hell of ignorance, poverty and violence was returning to his childhood escape, fantasy fiction.
Always wondering what would have happened to well-crafted fantasy worlds, David began roughing out the world of Nostraterra during the 4th Age, creating the Shadow Wars series;comprising 3 parts, Assassins, Conspiracy and Myths. Shortly after roughing out Assassins, David heard gun fire from his office window and saw the film crew from Breaking Bad taking cover from an actual drive-by. Fearing that his tenure as Saul was about to come to an end in a shallow grave David and his family pulled up stakes bound for down under.
Older certainly, wiser, maybe not, but physically much safer trading kangaroos leaping out from the bushes rather than heavily armed Trump fans. David is hard at work on the second series of books from the land of Nostraterra, The Fourth Age, Dark Shaman. With a little luck, he will be able to put away his Barrister’s robes, write and cook, never to be asked by a client, “Am I going to Jail again?” again.
Interests include cooking, weather forecasting, martial arts, writing obviously and Japanese swords.
