About Paul Maguire

PAUL MAGUIRE lives with his three children in New Jersey. After working on the New York Stock Exchange for more than two decades, he decided to shift gears dramatically and pursue his lifelong dream of writing. Professor Atlas and the Summoning Dagger is Maguire’s first effort in this new endeavor, and he hopes to continue telling the tales of Professor Atlas’s adventures in many future installments. "Professor Atlas and the Jewel of Enlightenment", the second book in the series, is now available.

Maguire wishes to give thanks to his family for the many ways they have helped him during this effort. To Coleen, who offered a great deal of support and encouragement, and to Andy and Finn, who provided the ideas and the inspiration which truly brought Professor Atlas to life. Maguire also thanks his father, Jim, who taught him how to tell a story, and his mother, Diane, who taught him almost everything else.
