Book Savvy Spotlight on Paul Purday
Bringing you exclusive interviews with authors featured in the Book Savvy Newsletter. Our Guest is Paul Purday * Enjoy the interview. Q1. Can you tell us a little about yourself? I am a professional watercolour artist who has, due to various reasons retired from exhibiting my work, but will still paint commissions if asked. I painted the picture for the cover design of my book and the fact that I wrote the great proportion of it while sitting in shopping centres manning my exhibitions, meant that my art provided the opportunity for its execution. Q2. What gave you the impetus to write a book? I have written poetry most of my life and had some published as well as winning a poetry competition. Writing a book is always something I have considered but never found the right time. I read the 'Dark Secrets' and liked the style. This gave me the impetus to write, particularly as I had hours on my hands while I manned my exhibitions of watercolour paintings. Q3.
