Paul D. Dail was born in upstate New York and has lived in Colorado, Oregon, Georgia, Utah, Montana and even a brief stint in Hawaii.
Writing has always been his passion, and while he will quickly tell you that the people he has met in the many places that he has traveled have been the best schooling he could get, Paul received his formal education in English with a Creative Writing emphasis at the University of Montana, Missoula.
In the years that followed, he has used the power of words to inspire, entertain, inform and even scare his readers…all depending on the day.
Truth is sometimes stranger: the nonfiction writer
Paul’s first professionally published piece of creative nonfiction was a piece about the birth of his daughter in the Reader’s Write section of The Sun Magazine.
Since then, he has done everything from blogging for a defense attorney to writing lead-generating content for Adobe.
His creative nonfiction has appeared in The Sun Magazine, Writer’s Digest, Elan Woman and Etched magazine.
Currently Paul is an editor for a regional news outlet in southern Utah.
