|Paul S. Kemp enjoys beer (mostly Guinness, but also Tetley's). And cigars. And Yankee baseball. And Michigan football.|
He is a graduate of the University of Michigan-Dearborn and the University of Michigan law school. When he's not writing tales in Ed's magnificent brainchild, he practices corporate law in Detroit. Yes, that does make him a tool of "the Man." Keeping a heel on the throat of common folk is what he does. Helps him write believable villains.
His reading tastes run the gamut from Shakespeare to Tom Clancy. He's particularly fond of Milton, and religious themes tend to trickle into his writing despite his best efforts to the contrary. A well-written fantasy short story is work of art -- some of Michael Swanwick's work astounds him. His philosophy on writing? Make it dark, make it gritty, and above all, make it believable. Characters drive plots, not the other way around.
