Paul Rushworth-Brown was born in Maidstone, Kent, England, in 1962. He spent time in a foster home in Manchester before emigrating to Canada with his mother in 1972. He spent his teenage years living and attending school in Toronto, Ontario, where he also played professional soccer in the Canadian National Soccer League. In 1982, he emigrated to Australia to spend time with his father, Jimmy Brown, who moved there from Yorkshire in the mid-fifties.


Paul was educated at Charles Sturt University in New South Wales, Australia and became a writer in 2015 after his self-published novel 'Skulduggery' was picked up by Shawline Publishing. Paul's novels are authentic and gritty, with twists and turns the reader won't see coming. He paints a realistic image of how peasants would have lived in the 16th and 17th centuries. However, that is only the backdrop to suspenseful and mysterious stories with romantic tones. His novel 'Red Winter Journey' has been nominated for the NSW Premier's Literary Awards (Christina Stead Prize for fiction). His new novel 'Dream of Courage' will be released in November.

SKULDUGGERY
A story of love and religious tolerance in 17th-century England. 'The story is a well-painted image of how 'copyholders' or peasants would have lived at this time, but that is only the backdrop to a suspenseful whodunit with romantic tones.

“Historical fiction at its best!”
The hype around this book has been unquestionable and, admittedly, that made me both eager to get my hands on it and terrified to read it. I mean, what if I was to be the one person that didn't love it as much as others? (That seems silly now because of how truly mesmerizing Skulduggery was in the most heartbreakingly realistic way.) I knew this one was a must-read, so I was ready to set my fears aside and dive in. I'm so glad I did because it took me to a place that I had never been before 17th century Yorkshire. Rudsworth-Brown describes the times in a realistic and provocative way and holds nothing back about the hardships faced by the people living there at the time. The love story, mystery and characters were truly wonderful.

“An exciting story!”
I was very happy to discover that the author managed to create a new universe and fill it with an amazing storyline, unique evolving characters, and some series twists I didn't see coming.
I really liked how the story's reality was revealed naturally in the storytelling and not forced at the beginning. It was explained as needed and I was never left confused with too little information.
The appearance of this book is really wonderful, and that attracts the viewer to but it. It's kinda eye catchy. The story has a very straight forward presentation which made it even more lively. If I talk about the language used in the book. I didn't face any difficulty while reading the book.
Haven't read this author before. I would read this author again and hope they continue writing in this genre.
I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a story that will stay with you long after you read the final sentence.

Fantastic!
Loved this from start. It has great characters, humour.

“Truths will shock”
Isn't it just so great when you find one of those books that completely drags you in, makes you fall in love with the characters and demands that you immerse yourself in its realm? This is one of those books for me. And I must issue a serious content warning: this book describes how life was like on the moors in the 1700 's with a highly descriptive nuance. Proceed with caution (or not at all) if you are particularly sensitive as its truths will shock.

A rare find indeed.

I knew by the blurb I'd be reading an historic tale but never did I imagine being transported back to 1642 as if I had lived in that day and age myself.

What a brilliant adventure, loaded with twists, turns and characters that you can't help to fall in love with on their journey. Tommy's character development was superb and well-paced throughout the book.

As much as I love the main characters, I thought the supporting characters were just as well defined and added to the narrative.

I have to say I was looking for something I haven't read before and I most certainly found it. The drama that permeates through this entire book most definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat, but what I adored most was how accurate and articulated the time period is written, down to the tiniest of colloquialisms that I hadn't heard of before.

You can most definitely tell the authors knowledge of this time period was thoroughly researched - and it certainly made me miss old English!

Can't wait to read more from this author.

This is an interesting and intriguing book. The author drops us into village and family life in Haworth Yorkshire, in the 1640s. We can smell the candlewax, feel the chilly dampness, and see the gritty basics of everyday life for the Rushworth family. The author succeeds in his mission to understand and paint the picture of his ten-generation-ago family.

The family is fearful but disinterested observers of the growing conflict between the pro-royalty Cavaliers and the republican Roundheads as it nears, but are drawn in as it engulfs communities. The story develops into a fascinating multi-layered interplay involving family, village hierarchy, colourful local characters and the frequently visited ale houses. It is overlaid by the presence of the invasive and ruthless military of each side of the conflict.

This tale was engaging; cleverly developing the plot by weaving family, village and military characters into a series of dramatic episodes. While there are no winners in a war, Rushworth-Brown has produced a convincing story of family and individual resilience. There is an air of authenticity about the descriptions that totally satisfy these questions – what was it like during those times? How could families and communities endure? I doubt you will find a more convincing account.

Historical Fiction is not usually a genre that I go for, however, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I was especially impressed by the time and amount of research that must have gone into planning and writing in such great, factual detail. I learnt so much about England during that time period and appreciated all of the smaller details that went into helping set the scene for the reader. I got through this book really quickly as I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen to Tommy and if he would make it back to his family after being kidnapped and forced to fight in the war. There are numerous twists and turns throughout that leave you desperately wanting to know what happens next. I cannot wait to read the other books in this series!

Five years ago, I set about writing a different kind of book. A book that I felt wasn't available, a book that I wanted to read. An honest story that pulled no punches about the lives of people living on the moors of Yorkshire in the 16 and 17th centuries. These people were my ancestors and probably yours, the poor peasants lost to time but now found.

Paul has been a guest on the ABC, BBC, America Tonight with Kate Delaney and regularly features on the Witty Writers Show in the US. The US Times said, 'Modern writers usually don't know what it was like to live in the past, but Rushworth-Brown does this with great skill in his accomplished, atmospheric and thoughtful novels.'

Paul's novels are authentic and gritty, with twists and turns the reader won't see coming. He paints a realistic image of how peasants would have lived in the 16th and 17th centuries. However, that is only the backdrop to suspenseful and mysterious stories with romantic tones. His novel 'Red Winter Journey' https://bit.ly/3WXHVUs has been nominated for the NSW Premier's Literary Awards (Christina Stead Prize for fiction). His new novel 'Dream of Courage' will be released in April.
