Kishan Paul

Kishan Paul

From daring escapes by tough women to chivalrous men swooping in to save the day, the creativity switch to Kishan Paul's brain is always in the 'on' position. If daydreaming stories were a college course, Kish would graduate with honors. And since it was not a college course, she got her graduate degree in social work instead.

When the stories in her head became unrelenting, she finally put them on paper and, in June 2015, published her contemporary romance, Blind Love, through Samhain Publications. Later that same year, she self-published her suspense/thriller, The Second Wife. Since its release, The Second Wife has been named The 2018 Pencraft Book of The Year Award for Literary Excellence, The 2016 Kindle Book Awards Winner, The 2016 McGrath House Independent Book Awards Winner, and The 2016 finalist for The Maggie Award for Excellence. She has also self-published, The Widow's Keeper, book two of The Second Wife Series and is currently finishing up The Deadly Match, the third and final book of the trilogy.

Kishan divides her time with writing, seeing clients in her counseling practice, and with spending time with her husband of twenty years and their two lovely children. 2018 Pencraft Awards Kishan Paul and David Hearne
