Paul, the co-producer and co-host of the Open Kwong Dore Podcast, will be releasing his debut novel The Walking Man on February 2nd, 2015. Pj wanted to turn the tables on Paul and interview him about how this book came about, his writing process and his unique plans on his performance-based book launch.

The Walking Man begins in the deserts of Jordan and explores a year in the life of the main character – someone very similar to the author – and his attempts to make sense of a tumultuous year. Based on many of the author’s own experiences, The Walking Man mixes reality and fiction in a tale of heartbreak, friendship and personal history that uses walking to thread it all together.
