Paul S. Medland.

Paul was born in 1959 in Eltham, South of the River Thames in London. Apart from living for a short time in Eastlakes, Sydney, Australia, he spent most of his life growing up; living and working around London and Kent. He now lives in a more sedate and rural town in Powys, Mid Wales.

Paul got involved with First-Aid and Ambulances around his early teens, becoming a member of the St. John Ambulance Brigade. When he left school in 1975 he first became a Physiological Measurement Technician at the famous Guys Hospital. He then he worked in the Operating Theatres until he was able to follow his dream and join the London Ambulance Service and qualify as a grade 4 'Miller' Ambulanceman.

In 1985 he accepted the role of '2nd in-command' for the A-Z Private Ambulance Service, specialising in Premature Baby transfers and Spinal Injury transfers all over the UK. He did this until his move to Wales.  He has also worked as an Auxiliary Nurse and managed a Social Services base for Adults with Leaning Disabilities. His last role was Residential Support for abused children with severe challenging behaviours, learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders.

In all his roles he has had a deep interest in Health & Safety and he holds the Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (I.O.S.H.) Managing Safety certificate. His extensive training and vast experience, along with his passion gives him an excellent knowledge base for his Non-fiction writing.

His interests in the Unknown and unexplainable create a depth of understanding which makes his fictional writing lifelike and very believable.
