Paul W. Papa is an American storyteller who lived in Laramie, Wyoming, until, after shoveling himself out of one too many six-foot snowdrifts, he strapped a snow shovel onto the front of his vehicle and drove south until someone asked him what it was. He landed in Las Vegas, Nevada (where, by the way, it does not snow), and quickly developed a love for writing true stories about uncommon events. Having never forgotten his Wyoming roots, Paul continues to be fascinated by stories of the once Wild West. He now owns a business that concentrates on nonfiction, technical, and commercial writing. Paul is the author of several books, including It Happened in Las Vegas (Globe Pequot Press) and Haunted Las Vegas (Globe Pequot Press). When not at his keyboard, Paul can be found on the trails of Bootleg Canyon riding his mountain bike, hiking around Red Rock Canyon, or on the waters of the Colorado in his kayak.
