Paul J. Teague
Hi, I'm Paul Teague, the author of the Don't Tell Meg trilogy as well as several other standalone psychological thrillers such as Burden of Guilt, Dead of Night and One Fatal Error.
I'm a former broadcaster and journalist with the BBC, but I have also worked as a primary school teacher, a disc jockey, a shopkeeper, a waiter and a sales rep.
I've read thrillers all my life, starting with Enid Blyton's Famous Five series, then graduating to James Hadley Chase, Harlan Coben, Linwood Barclay and Mark Edwards.
If you love those authors then you’ll like my thrillers too.
I started off writing thrillers with the Don’t Tell Meg Trilogy which draws upon my 18 year career in radio journalism.
It’s fast-moving, high action and a bit racy in places, but it was great fun writing the story and I hope to re-visit the characters one day.
My standalones are ‘can’t-put-down’ stories where normal people find themselves in extradordinary situations.
In Dead of Night, Jack and Lucy hit a man on an isolated road in the middle of nowhere and get caught up in a violent, high-stakes hunt.
Burden of Guilt is set in the Scottish Highlands and tells the story of Katy Wild who has to fight to stay alive in the isolated hills and woodland.
In One Fatal Error, Matt Dalton gets involved with a billionaire entrepreneur only to find that he should have been careful what he wished for.
I love writing thrillers and plan on writing many more in the years ahead.
I also write sci-fi and dystopian novels as Paul Teague and these stories are set in dark and sinister future-worlds.
I have written The Secret Bunker Trilogy, The Grid Trilogy and the stanadlone story, Deleted.
