About the author

Paul, (author of Pete the Bee) lives with his wife and twelve year old son Matthew in South Wales in the UK. 

Paul has a very busy and varied professional life but, in the little free time that he has, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing the piano and keeping fit.. 

Why write Will and His Dog?

Paul's son Matthew is desperate for the family to have a pet dog. Sadly, Paul is allergic to dogs and so there will be no pet. So, instead, Paul decided to write a series of adventures about an eight year old boy (the same age as Matthew at the time of writing) and his pet dog Clive for Matthew to read. Matthew always read the stories after he had his lockdown maths lesson each morning. He read lots of other books too, but he likes 'Will and His Dog' because he imagines that he is Will with his own dog. 

Interesting fact...

The image on the front book cover is a picture of Matthew with a random dog that he met on holiday in France last year.
