Paul has chaired well over two hundred author events in recent years, mainly at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, but also at the Harrogate Crime Writing Festival, Dead on Deansgate, Crime Fest and Bouchercon Texas. He has handled groups of up to five writers, but prefers pairs of authors and single-author interviews. Among the novelists he has chaired are Julian Barnes, Kate Atkinson, Ian Rankin, Iain Banks, Sebastian Barry, Ali Smith, William Boyd, Val McDermid, Douglas Coupland, William Gibson, Tim Parks and Christopher Brookmyre. He has made a point of chairing non-fiction writers as well, ranging across history, science, biography, travel and politics.
