Paul Wartenberg developed an interest in writing as far back as the first grade, and pursued an interest in creative writing alongside studying for a career in journalism. He graduated from the University of Florida in 1992 with a degree in Journalism while working as an editor for the local monthly paper Moon.
Paul writes as a blogger with his You Might Notice a Trend website covering current news and political commentary. He also writes short stories covering many genres, and has been published in anthologies such as Strangely Funny and the upcoming Strangely Funny III, Mardi Gras Murder, and History and Mystery Oh My! He published a collection of shorts in his own anthology Last of the Grapefruit Wars. He works in the real world as a reference librarian, a career covering 22 years and going.
Paul is currently owned by two cats: Ocean the Wiggle Cat and Mal the Crazy Cat. He's been a resident of Florida since childhood, which means that yes he has seen a lot of crazy stuff. Relax. He's used to it by now.
