About Jeffrey Paul

Who I am: I’m a Boston-based author of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, a former university instructor of English, and a good, old-fashioned book nerd. When I’m not writing or reading, I’m playing power forward on an adult-league basketball squad, following my local, New England sports franchises, and geeking out to the latest hip-hop releases.

What I do: I’m the content editor for Mesothelioma Help Now.

What motivates me: As both a health nut and a news junkie, I believe very much in the power of making the latest and most relevant information available to the public. Further, as the son of a cancer survivor, I’m a major advocate for providing helpful resources and news to both cancer patients who are undergoing treatment and their loving caretakers.
