Paul Myers was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in southern California. Paul moved to British Columbia, Canada thirty years ago. His professional career has included washing cars, peeling onions, hammering nails, administrating group homes, teaching, pastoring, writing and speaking. He holds a Master of Christian Studies from Regent College, a Master of Divinity from Vancouver School of Theology, and a Diplôme d'Etudes Approfondies de Troisième Cycle from the Faculté Libre de Théologie Protestante de Montpellier, France. He is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in Canada and has served communities in downtown Vancouver and West Vancouver, B.C. Myers has delivered over 750 public addresses, and appeared on numerous regional and national television broadcasts.

In his book, "Rooster in the Cathedral" Paul Myers walks the ancient pilgrimage route that leads to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, Spain and weaves together his walking experience with many years as a spiritual guide, a provocateur of the insipid middle, and someone frank about his own inner struggles. Rooster in the Cathedral is neither a travelogue nor a guidebook. Instead, the walking journey is used as a means to reflect on some of the larger, and sometimes intractable, issues of life.
