Paul Roach, or Paul Bryan Roach to distinguish himself from the other ones as there are Paul Roach surfers, Paul Roach footballers, Paul Roach assistant directors of relationship management and a fair-few more.  This Paul Roach is a U.S. Naval Officer, a physician-surgeon, an oncologic sub-specialist, and apropos of this website an author of two books thus far, plus an occasional web log.

He’s a little older than what you see here but it’s just a photo and we’d be wrong to read too much into it.  The front page photo is current, anyway.

PBR as an author aspires to give the reader something worth their genuine affection. That may sound a modest goal but it’s not, really.  Professionals who focus upon nothing else but writing have devil enough of a time with it; God only knows how dicey a proposition it can be for the amateur.  But writing and literature, like romance and politics, are too important to leave entirely to the pro’s.  Some of us who are fully engaged in the actual events of combat or other professions must be free to tell our stories first hand.  Thank God for the Internet.

Perhaps you’ll love it I don’t know? Despite the modest goal I stated that’s what I’m really after, anyway, something excited in you, impacted, I want what you read to stick to your ribs.  And it’s my humble goal to do just that –to present you my dear reader with a few stories or discussions that may hopefully pass your rigorous standards and prove themselves worthy of you.  It’s what storytellers have always loved to do.
