Paul Vachon

Lifelong Michigan resident Paul Vachon's introduction to the Upper Peninsula came on a childhood trip to Sault Ste. Marie to see the magnificent Soo Locks. From that point on, he developed a love for travel in general, and Michigan in particular. Over the years, Paul has visited virtually every corner of the Great Lake State. One of his favorite pastimes is heading "up north" on Interstate 75 to a myriad of Michigan destinations. Paul has also traveled extensively both within and outside the U.S. His international destinations have included Guatemala, Denmark, Italy, Israel, and Egypt.

Paul began writing in 2008, covering topics as diverse as travel, local history, business, and green living. He is the author of two books on Detroit-area history, Forgotten Detroit and South Oakland County.

Paul lives with his wife, Sheryl, and their son, Evan, in Oak Park, a suburb of Detroit. You can learn more about Paul by visiting his website, www.paulvachonwrites.com.
