Hi, I'm Paul Teague (writing as Paul J. Teague), the author of the Don't Tell Meg trilogy, the Morecambe Bay series of books as well as several other standalone psychological thrillers such as Dead of Night, So Many Lies and Now You See Her.

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.

I can't even remember where the story for Don't Tell Meg came from - it's definitely a reflection of my life at the BBC, though all of it is fiction. Don't Tell Meg was my first psychological thriller, it's probably rougher around the edges than my latest books. I love the story and the characters though and one day I might even write a sequel. You never get to know Meg - there's another story in there from her point of view :-)(less)

“It’s not just the absence of the sex, it’s what it means and how we got there. It’s the blocking and pushing away that’s involved that had made me feel so isolated. Lonely.”
