Paul Elliott has an honours degree in ancient history and archaeology from the University of Wales Cardiff. He first began writing for Steve Jackson Games in 1991 and has continued to write ever since. His earlier books focussed on cults and secret societies, a fascination he gained from reading H.P. Lovecraft on cold winter's nights!
He has a tremendous passion for ancient history, Roman in particular, and is involved in Roman military re-enactment. Much of this is done in the spirit of historical reconstruction and experimentation and can be read about on the Earlyworks website 'www.earlyworks.weebly.com'
Paul has also written articles for Ancient Warfare magazine, Military Wargames and Wargames Illustrated as well as the gaming magazines Adventurer and Arcane.
He lives in East Yorkshire.
