Paul Read

After gaining a first in Fine Art at the Kent Institute of Art and Design at Canterbury, Paul Read moved to London, finding employment at Foyles bookshop before becoming a teacher. He has worked in several inner-city schools as an Art, English and supply teacher, both in England and Italy. He received a distinction from City University London for his creative writing MA.  A few years ago, Paul was involved in a hit-and-run incident which put him in a wheelchair for several months and was where he wrote the first draft of his debut, The Art Teacher. He lives with Patricia and their two children Paul's second novel, Blame, will be published in April 2017.  Follow Paul on Twitter at @paulreadauthor
