Paris Crenshaw was born and raised in Virginia, spending most of his younger years in central Virginia, before attending Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. His first exposure to gaming was in the early '80s with things like D&D (BECMI), "Top Secret", "Boot Hill" and "Star Frontiers." Later, in high school, he came across the game "Phantasia", created by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. Shortly thereafter, he rediscovered D&D with the 2nd Edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules. He played AD&D through high school and into college, but explored many other game systems while pursuing his Bachelor of Science degree in Ocean Engineering from VA Tech. He also received his first publication credits in the "Earthdawn Journal," playtested the "Deadlands" RPG rules in a gaming group with Shane Lacey Hensley, and ran demonstrated scenarios at GenCon for Charles Ryan and his game, "Millenium's End."

After receiving his commission in the U.S. Navy, Paris moved to Japan and slipped away from gaming for a few years until the release of D&D 3rd Edition. He resumed playing with the new rules and eventually transitioned to the Pathfinder system after Paizo began the "Pathfinder Adventure Path" series to replace his subscriptions to Dragon and Dungeon magazines. He began writing published material and doing editing work for the Wayfinder fanzine and now serves as its assistant editor-in-chief. He has edited for and contributed to a small number of third-party publishers.

Paris lives with his family in San Diego, CA, where he is still serving in the Navy while continuing to pursue his freelance work, preparing for retirement from service, and the commencement of a second career. He has yet to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up, but he's sure that he wants to continue writing.
