Paul Nicholas Mason
Born 1958 in London, England, Paul Nicholas Mason also lived as a child in Zimbabwe (then called Rhodesia), in Burnaby, B.C., and in Kingston, Ontario. He now makes his home with his wife, Nathalie, in Cobourg, Ontario. He is a graduate of two universities, Trent and Queen’s, and has two daughters, a step-son and step-daughter, two sons-in-law, and two grandchildren.
Paul’s novels, Battered Soles (nominated for the Stephen Leacock Award for Humor) and The Red Dress (long-listed for the 2009 ReLit award), were published in 2005 and 2008 respectively by Turnstone Press of Winnipeg. His third novel, The Night Drummer, was published in early 2015 by Now or Never of Vancouver. Publishers Weekly describes Drummer as “quietly affecting” and “captivating.” His fourth, The Rogue Wave, was hailed by Canadian librarians as one of the three most anticipated Canadian books published in April of 2021. His fifth, To Our Graves (a work of crime fiction), will be published in April of 2024.
Paul retired from teaching in 2015, and in December of that year launched a new career in voice-acting, film, and television. As of 2023, he has been involved in some sixty projects, including fifteen feature films and seven network television series. Mr. Mason became a member of ACTRA in late 2017
