  • Biography

    Paul was once described by a novelist as 'creative with a capital C' and this creativity is there in every art form he touches - writing, music, graphics, web design...

    At the same time, there is more to Paul's work than creativity, please feel free to click on the links to find out more about his writing, music and other work.

  • Writing

    Business Writing

    In addition to writing what is almost certainly the most pioneering CV book in decades (The One Page CV), Paul is also very much in demand for other business projects including Web content, personal statements, biographies, articles and more. Paul is currently working on another non-fiction book project.

    Fiction Writing

    Paul writes non-fiction in a very unique and engaging style. His fiction is also somewhat different both in style and content. His latest fiction project is a novel. Watch this space...

    Possible Band?

    I would be interested in playing in a band that is based in Scotland, the main criteria would be that the music is 100% original (no covers), the members are talented, and that the music is indie. My main influences are New Model Army, Placebo and The Stranglers.

    I would be open to doing something on acoustic or electric guitar, or playing bass. I'm also happy to sing.

  • tora terra tora

    She's my home
    I didn't buy no rights
    For my Alpine days
    Or Arabian nights

    She gives her all for me
    She gives it all for free

    She gives her all
    But we just fight
    We snatch her fruits
    Then bite and bite

    She gives her all for me
    She gives it all for free

  • Sapphire Lake

    Ripples in Sapphire Lake
    Another stone another wake
    Gazing after dawn is that your face
    Is that your crown where is this place?

    Sapphire draws you down
    Where are you
    What's the hour
    Is it you?
    Sapphire Lake what do you want of me?
    How do I know you?
    Sapphire lake

    Look into my crystal eyes
    Green glints sparks and memorize
    Fireworks rise through purple skies
    And feel it now and touch it now

    Courtyard clash cobbles and hooves
    A lone horn sounds
    Your carriage moves
    Meriln calls out be not bemused
    But feel it now and touch it now

    Red carpets spread beneath your feet
    Bowed heads boarder ever street
    Test the mirror for deceit
    And feel it now and touch it now

    Touch the glass so clean and smooth
    The magic blows the image moves
    As waves head back towards her shores
    And Sapphire's secret veil redraws

    Feel it now

  • Tarnished Amber

    Its just another day
    It's just another night
    Its just another way
    Its just the way it is

    And I know its right
    And I know it well
    And I know it still
    It's just the way of life

    Please
    Please forgive me
    Where's your heart and soul
    Just close your eyes
    And dream away

    And
    And I know its right
    And I know it well
    And I know it still
    It's just another day

  • Secrets

    Feel the calling
    Feel the tingle down your spine
    Feel the calling
    Sense that now's the time
    Katherine's falling
    Katherine's falling
    Her head spins round and round
    Katherine's falling
    But not towards the ground
    Katherine's falling

    Feel the calling
    Hear those whispers in your head
    Feel the calling
    In the still air by your bed
    Katherine's falling
    Katherine's falling
    I wonder if she knows
    Katherine's falling
    But when will she let go
    Katherine's falling
    Falling
    ….Falling
    For the secrets

  • Raindance

    Close your eyes
    Close your eyes and ride the storm
    Close your eyes thunder cries as lightning dies
    Close your eyes dream yourself a vision
    Close your eyes
    Conjure up what you're missing

    Hold your hands out
    Hands out to the skies
    Hold your hands out
    Expect your surprise
    Feel the dust
    Blowing all around
    Watch the dust
    Fall back to the ground
    Hold your hands out
    Hands out to the skies
    Hold your hands out
    Expect your surprise
    Hold your hands out
    Hands out to the skies
    Hold your hands out
    Expect your surprise
    Feel the dust
    Blowing all around
    Watch the dust
    Fall back to the ground
    Feel the
    Feel the pitter patter as she cries
    The skies

    No need to talk
    No need for words

    No need to talk
    No need for words
    Just feel it

    Don't need to touch
    Don't need no proof
    Just feel it

  • Nelly

    Deep in your heart there is a mountain
    Alpine peak all white as snow

    Deep in your soul there is a fountain
    Purest water springing forth

    There's no winter
    There's no cold
    But lots of promise
    If you are bold

    Deep in your eyes there is a lantern
    Shining bright amid the dark

    Deep in your voice it is enchanting
    Sweet melodies amid the barks

    There's no winter
    There's no cold
    But lots of promise
    If you are bold

    Deep in your smile there is a sparkle
    Diamond glint between the lines

    Deep in your whole there is a kindness
    A burning love that never dies

    There's no winter
    There's no cold
    But lots of promise
    If you are bold

    Nelly here you are
    Hold my hand
    Help you up
    Help you come on up

  • Everyday Angel

    She was my star
    My teenage dream
    She was my beauty queen
    That winter's day
    She took my ring
    Was my greatest day

    She was
    My one true lover
    My only wife
    Its been two score years
    Since she's been gone
    But she's been with me
    Every day and night

    God's my friend
    But I'll never see
    Just why He took
    My Kathy
    Just 22
    And full of life
    When she fell into her dream

    She was
    My one true lover
    My only wife
    Its been two score years
    Since she's been gone
    But she's been with me
    Every day and night

    Kathy's gone
    Or so they say
    Fate didn't fall her way
    But to me
    Well I still see her
    Watching over me

    She was
    My one true lover
    My only wife
    Its been two score years
    Since she's been gone
    But she's been with me
    Every day and night

  • heartstring meadow

    Am I dreaming?
    I wish I were
    No sign of you
    For half a year

    They all said
    That you'd run
    They told me
    You weren't the one
    weren't the one

    They said move on
    But they don't see
    That in my heart
    You still wear my ring

    I don't care
    What you've done
    Without your love
    I'm so alone
    so alone

    And so I walk
    In my daily daze
    Down to the meadow
    Where we first lay

    And if I close my eyes
    I can smell you hair
    And when I look
    You're still there

    I knew you'd come
    All along
    Back to my arms
    Where you belong

    I knew you'd come
    All along
    Back to my heart
    Where you belong

  • vc43

    His plane is cruising but its not the jet set
    Each flax flanked sortie is like Russian roulette
    For him

    Hurtling down through the clouds from a mile up above
    No adrenaline junkie its just one more job
    For him

    I was there in Arnhem
    In 1943
    I saw him killed in action
    For me

    …And you

    A dip in the ocean
    No bucket and spade
    Just mines and barbed wire
    And shells German made
    For him

    Rush through the hail
    Red mist falls again
    No paintball adventure
    This isn't a game
    For him

    I was there in Arnhem
    In 1943
    I saw him killed in action
    For me

    …And you
    …Think about it
