About Pauly Hart
In 1994 Pauly Hart began his adult writing journey in St. Petersburg, Russia. Part of a youthful drama production, he began to explore his emotions and feelings through the written word. This was a paradigm shift for him. Up until that time, he had stifled his emotions, placing them away into small boxes inside of his heart. One by one, they were opened up. Now, over twenty years later, he's realized certain things about life.
He is unique. His vision is his. He was created to be Pauly Hart and no one else, so he'd best get about being the best Pauly that he can be. His voice has a story to tell. The strange and mind-bending life that he had lived thus far could only be the beginning of a lifetime of parables, silliness, wisdom, and other bric a brac. He needed to write. Not only to soothe the untamed beast lurking within his mind, but, as Walt Whitman said once: "I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world." - That was the reason that he continued writing.
But he never took it as a life choice. It was something that just was. There wasn't any reason to it, there wasn't any realization that smacked him in the face unbidden with the dream of becoming a "writer" - no it was at the behest of his soul that his hand took to the pen and keyboard. That change would happen in 2010.
"Artists never make any money. Be a businessman." His mother had told him. The power of those words pushed him into being a businessman, and he succeeded, in his fashion. Owning a small magazine, music promotion business, a bar, and a coffeeshop were the largest of his endeavors. Also, having gone to seminary, he also pastored at two churches.
He kept getting into trouble for being a maverick and a renegade. It frightened the old ladies at the first church he pastored. They had a meeting about him. Sure, his programs were an overnight success, but were they "permitted?" Alas, no. And so a steering committee was formed to "help" him in his efforts. By the time all was said and done, Pauly had moved states and found work elsewhere. No one has patience for renegades these days, it seems.
It wasn't really until 2003 that he felt that it was "alright with God" for him to be an artist. He tried and had mild success with abstract paintings, live poetry performances, music creation, saponification, acting in, and directing a play, game creation, and a couple more that were just horrible excuses for a writer to be involved with.
But then, in a flash, he decided to publish a book of poetry. Like that, he was hooked. "Stupid Mind Tricks" was his first adventure in really getting into the professional side of things. After that, he wrote his first novel: "By the Gates of the Garden of Eden" and it's been a roller-coaster after that.
Since 2010, he's published 20 works, along with one co-authorship with his wife. There doesn't seem to be any law against writing a zillion books, and, in the end, that's probably what Pauly Hart will end up doing.

Their story lies within the asbestos chalk that forms in your mind before screaming. Their story is the jump when you wake from falling. They are the sons of their fallen fathers, from the same womb as our proud race... Pale in the sun, afraid of the light. They wait, sharpening fang and claw to devour those unaware of their proposed feast. The brother of man, the terror of the night. Their story must be known.
Adelphoi is a form of the Greek word: “adelphos” which simply means: “my brother” but more literally means: “progeny of my mother’s womb.” Explore with me the offspring of a tainted man, those creatures mentioned only by dim candlelight in the dusty apartments of those who dare read such stories. Be it vampire or cyber-man other such rough beast, there is a story in this collection for you.
The testament that you now have isn’t anything to change your theology over. It’s a story, maybe somewhat important in understanding the mind of Job, through the original author’s pen... Or quill... Or chisel. But it’s a story nonetheless about a man named Job, the same one that we read about in “The Book of Job” which is part of the authorized canon of both Jewish and Christian faiths.
There are some distinct similarities in this book to the above mentioned, and there are some glaring differences. Yes, Job is tempted and put through trials by Satan. But the Satan that appears in this book is of more evil intent. The Satan that appears in the original book is a type of lawyer, a type of schoolmaster, daring Yahway Elohim to prove how much his creations love Him.
This is nightmare comfort food at its finest!
