United States
Ever since Paul Hoffman was little, he’s been digging for answers to life’s questions. His fifth-grade teacher, Cynthia Chovanec, noted his enthusiasm for finding the truth, writing on his report card: “Paul knows the value of research materials. He knows where to find the information he seeks.”

Paul has been using that inquisitive nature and penchant for getting question20130627-paul-hoffman-0106s answered throughout his professional career as a journalist as well as with his two published books.

His first book, “Murder in Wauwatosa: The Mysterious Death of Buddy Schumacher,” was published in 2012 by The History Press. It is a true story of the disappearance of an 8-year-old boy in 1925 and the subsequent investigation into the boy’s murder.

“Wicked Columbus, Indiana,” his second book, published in June 2017 by the same publisher, tells the true tales of some of that city’s more salacious stories.

Paul J. Hoffman was born in Madison, Wisconsin, to Raymond and Sharon (McPhail) Hoffman and was raised in Wauwatosa, a suburb of Milwaukee.

His journalism experience consists of working as a sports writer at the Milwaukee Sentinel; assistant sports editor at Pioneer Press newspapers in the Chicago area; sports editor and news editor in Shelbyville, Indiana; news editor in Columbus, Indiana; and special publications editor at the Daily Journal in Franklin, Indiana, his position since 2001.

He is a graduate of Wauwatosa East High School and attended both the University of Wisconsin – Madison and the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, graduating from the latter with a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications (Radio/TV sequence) and a minor in English.

His creative nature has led to small roles in three motion pictures, as well as a bevy of poems.

He is married to Kimberly Sue Hoffman, has three daughters, a son, two stepdaughters and a granddaughter.
