About Paul Shirley
Paul is the author of two humor memoirs, a novel, and a how-to book. The first memoir (Can I Keep My Jersey?) chronicles three years in his stop-and-start professional basketball career. The second (Stories I Tell On Dates) chronicles an entire lifetime in his stop-and-start dating career.
His first novel, Ball Boy, follows the adventures of Gray Taylor, a 14-year-old who discovers basketball when his mother moves them from Los Angeles to small-town Kansas.
Paul lives in Denver, where he runs a co-working space and virtual platform called The Process, whose theory is outlined in his fourth book, The Process is the Product. Paul has also written for ESPN.com, Slate, Esquire, the Wall Street Journal, and FlipCollective.com, a website for writers he founded.
