Cops and Writers are taking you across the pond to the Emerald Isle with Paddy Finn!
Have you ever considered selling all your worldly possessions and embarking on a six-month trip across Europe, and maybe further? This sounds like something a young person just finishing high school or college might do. My guest on today’s show is at the start of this journey, but, with his wife, three small children ranging in age from one to seven, and mother-in-law.
Paddy Finn is no stranger to new adventures. This entrepreneur left a lucrative career in what many would consider the prime of his employment life, to start his author's career.
Today, Paddy Finn is the CEO of Starcane Press and Penny Dragon Games, Paddy Finn writes military science fiction, murder mysteries, and runs several tabletop roleplaying game Kickstarter campaigns each year.
In today’s episode, we discuss:
