Paul Henke : Author of the ‘Tears’ Series

Paul has led an extraordinary life. Born and raised in the mining valleys of South Wales, his father was a Polish immigrant who came to the UK during the Second World War. Paul was educated at Pontypridd Boys’ Grammar and from an early age had a burning desire to be a Royal Naval officer.

Having trained at Dartmouth Royal Naval College he qualified as a bomb and mine disposal expert, specialising in diving and handling explosives. He led a crack team of underwater bomb disposal specialists and also became the Commanding Officer of various minesweeping and minehunting ships.

He survived a machine gun attack by IRA gun runners in Ireland in 1976. Using plastic explosives he was responsible for blowing-up a number of Second World War mines found off the coast of Britain.

In the Royal Navy Paul  worked with Prince Charles for a year.

In the 1980s Paul  lived in Nigeria for fifteen months where he was in charge of a saturation diving system. He then moved to the American Midwest for a year.

Now a full time author, he travels extensively, researching material for his work. He had his name in lights when he was invited to do a book-signing on the the Las Vegas strip.
