Welcome to the official website of the author Paul Gadsby

About me

Paul GadsbyI worked as a news, sports and trade journalist in and around London for 15 years and am now based in my native Northamptonshire. By day I am a copywriter for a PR firm, and by night I write my fictional material.

In 2005 I co-wrote the non-fiction snooker book Masters of the Baize, which was named book of the week by The Sunday Times and The Independent. More about that can be found here.

Reading and writing fiction, particularly crime fiction, has been a great passion of mine for many years. If you would like to see who my favourite writers and greatest influences in the media are, please click here. I love listing that sort of stuff, but it’s not for everybody which is why it’s tucked away on a different page.

Chasing the Game, published by Matador in 2014, is my first novel. My second work of fiction, When the Roar Fades, will be released soon. Please watch this space for details, but for those who would like a head start, a short tease about it can be found here.

Outside of writing and reading, I love watching sports – especially snooker, football, cricket and tennis – along with quality films and TV. I live with my wife and five-year-old son.

If you’d like to know more about my life (I’m told it bears a remarkable resemblance to that of Jude Law) and my interests on a day-to-day basis, you can find me on Twitter – @PaulJGadsby
