Paul Thain was born in South Shields, UK. Inspired by his acting experience with the National Youth Theatre, he gave up life as a bus conductor, studied A-levels, and then read Drama and Theatre Arts at Birmingham University

When his first child was born he left teaching to become primary parent and playwright. His second radio play - The Biggest Sandcastle in the World - won a BBC Giles Cooper Award as one of the Best Radio Plays of 1981, and he has subsequently written many more including The Paradise Machine for which the BBC's production won the 1995 European Broadcasting Union Award for Best European Radio Drama

Other work includes four commissioned screenplays, as yet unproduced, and five stage plays. His plays have been published and performed throughout the world, particularly the UK, Germany, Italy, Russia, New Zealand, and South Africa
