Paul Woodman, writer and martial artist, was a reading addict from a very young age, enjoying science fiction and fantasy. He knows what makes a good, fun story and includes those elements in his writing. Paul began studying martial arts after his discharge from the Army in 1975, holds a second-degree black belt in Goshin Do Karate, practices Brazilian Jujitsu, and teaches private martial arts classes. An active member of his Assembly of God church, he is also a leader for the Royal Rangers (the A.G. equivalent of the Boy Scouts), teaching boys Bible study, camping, and wilderness survival skills. Paul resides in Pennsylvania.
