Paul W. White was born on October 9, 1959, in Roswell, New Mexico, to Ed and Nancy White. He also has a sister, Janan White Little. As Janan is quick to point out, she may be five years older than Paul, but she looks ten years younger.
Shortly after his first birthday, the family moved to Casper, Wyoming. In 1963, they relocated to Midland, Texas, where they remained throughout Paul's formative years.
After graduating from Midland High School in 1978, Paul attended the University of Texas at Austin. He graduated from U.T. in 1982, and was accepted into the St. Mary's School of Law in San Antonio. He received his law degree from there in 1985.
From 1985 -2000, Paul had a successful career as a trial lawyer, primarily in his hometown of Midland. After that, he worked in the mental health field in several different capacities. He still works in the Oil & Gas industry as a independent oil operator.
In 2006, Paul decided to pursue his life long dream of being a writer. He promptly became successful a free-lance journalist. His two favorite subjects are Texas sports and Texas politics.
In the summer of 2007, he decided it was time to write his first novel. Drawing from his own personal experiences and observations, he created Drawing Straight With Crooked Line - A Tale of Redemption. His second novel, The 7th Flag Over Texas, should be out in the summer of 2011.
Paul now lives in the Texas Hill Country. In his spare time, he enjoys cussing and throwing things at his television whenever one of his two favorite sports teams, the Texas Longhorns or the San Antonio Spurs, are playing. He is also an accomplished fly fisherman.
