Paul Alan Fahey


Formal Bio:

Paul Alan Fahey, Ed.D, lives on the Central California Coast. He created and edited Mindprints, an international literary journal for writers and artists with disabilities, at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, California. During his tenure, Mindprints made Writers Digest’s “Top 30 Short Story Markets” list for two consecutive years. His writing has appeared in Byline, Palo Alto Review, Long Story Short, African American Review, The MacGuffin, Thema, Gertrude, Kaleidoscope, and in several other literary journals and anthologies like A Cup of Comfort, Sisters in Crime, My Mom is My Hero, and Writing on Walls. Paul’s monthly online column at Coffeehouse For Writers focused on writing advice. He is a six-time winner of the “Lillian Dean Writing Award” for short stories and nonfiction at the California Central Coast Writer’s Conference. 


I have two e books, LGBT fiction, out now published through JMS Books: THE VIEW FROM 16 PODWALE STREET and WHEN THE RIGHT ONE COMES ALONG  and four more in the works.  A young adult title, BOYS WILL BE BOYS, will be out in October 2012. I'm currently working with 22 terrific writers on the anthology, THE OTHER MAN, a collection of personal essays about the male writer being the other man, suffering the other man or having one's relationship affected by infidelity. THE OTHER MAN will be out in spring 2013 in print and as an e book and will be published by JMS BOOKS.
