Paddy Kelly got his first literary rejection at age twelve but he didn’t let it get to him. Since then, he has published fiction, articles and poetry in a range of online and analog outlets (one of which was actually called Analog). His fiction is mostly but not entirely in the area of science fiction, and he has two self-published works with more positive reviews than he has family members, which is a good trick. A qualified teacher and physicist, Paddy works with neither of those things, but he does enjoy sharing the few crumbs of writing wisdom he’s collected over the decades. He also dances belly dance.
