Paul B. Adams

Hiroshima, August 2002

Paul B. Adams is a writer of screenplays, television and novels.

After an 18 year career in Information Technology, Paul sold his house and most of his possessions to realise three dreams: to travel in South East Asia, visit Japan and to become a writer. Paul left his native Britain in 2002 and after his Asian travels, spent four years living in Sydney, Australia, where he undertook a Ba in Communications, majoring in Creative Writing and Cultural Studies.

While at UTS Paul worked on novel writing, creative non-fiction, and screenwriting projects, including his first short screenplay "Louise," and co-creating "Department Y," a comedy series for Australian television. Paul's first published work is "Ten Thousand Lanterns," a creative non-fiction about the event, geo-politics and city of Hiroshima. "Ten Thousand Lanterns" is published in the anthology "nine tenths below," by Halstead Press, Broadway N.S.W. Australia. 

In 2006, after completing his degree, Paul returned to the UK and London where he continued his writing career practising as a freelance content creator. He produced both short and long form copy for web and print, press releases, and produced web video and Podcasts. 

It was in London that Paul met Director Azhur Saleem and Producer James Boyle and worked with Azhur as co-writer on "The Marionette Unit" short film. Paul is now lead writer at James' production company, Park Road Pictures, where he co-created the "Origins" television series, wrote the Series Bible and "Yellow Brick Road" pilot treatment for "Origins," and is developing feature-length screenplays for both "The Marionette Unit" and a psychological thriller called "Beyond Reach." 

Paul now lives in Vancouver, with his partner Elizabeth.
