Hi, I'm Paul Teague, the author of The Secret Bunker Trilogy.
I'm a former broadcaster and journalist with the BBC, but I have also worked as a primary school teacher, a disc jockey, a shopkeeper, a waiter and a sales rep.
I wrote my first book at the age of 9 years old.
Titled 'Mr Plum And Mr Apple', the hand written story received the inevitable rejection slip, but that didn't stop me dabbling with writing throughout my life.
I have written short stories, plays, letters for magazines and hundreds of web articles, even a couple of self-published marketing books, but never a full-size fiction book.
'The Secret Bunker' was inspired by a family visit to a remarkable, real-life secret bunker at Troywood, Fife.
I love dystopian fiction (I didn't even realise that there was an official word for it until my daughter told me) so this competition has been a great opportunity to finally come up with my own vision of a future world where things are going haywire.

My next project is called 'The Grid' and you can watch as it takes shape towards the end of 2015 here: http://thegridtrilogy.com/
I also write web guides under the author name P Teague: http://viewauthor.at/PTeague
I am the author of several web guides aimed at small businesses which are sold under the 'Stuff Made Simple' brand.
