About Paul Kemp
Paul Kemp was raised by a foster family of nomadic carnival workers who toured around the United States working just enough to feed their bourbon and dope addictions. At the age of 18, Kemp joined the United States army as a reconnaissance scout, serving two tours in Afghanistan and one in Newfoundland, before going AWOL and joining the French Foreign Legion. After a short stint working for the French General Directorate for External Security, Kemp left to pursue a humble career in Hollywood writing screenplays for the wildly successful television series "Jersey Shore." Kemp's books include "Still Life with Peckerwood" (out-of-print), "To Kill a Shit-Bird" (out-of-print), and a collection of poems titled "Mohammad and Tequila" (under litigation). Kemp now spends his days working on the next Great American Novel from his fortified compound in the backwoods of Montana.
