What is DaddyElk?

DaddyElk Productions is a network of related Websites featuring artists & authors, podcasts & blogs.

It’s very cool (well, we think so).

Paul Matthew Carr started DaddyElk way back in 2010 as a blog share some of the ideas and random thoughts that tumbled from his head from time to time. This started out more or less focused but soon devolved into multiple topics and categories that Paul found hard to keep straight. These topics included: Science Fiction, Fantasy, baseball, stories, opinions, comic books, philosophy, music, and many others. And when podcasting became a thing a further complication was added. So in order to keep this straight Paul created multiple sites dedicated to each one. Soon other authors and creators came on board to help out and the network was born. Today the network consists of seven websites, five podcasts and includes half a dozen writers, artists and creators. And we continue to grow.

What’s in a Name?

DaddyElk is something my daughter called me when she was very young. And it makes me happy. It just so happens you can get the whole story here:

Who is Paul Matthew Carr?

He’s just a guy who likes to tell stories. He tells stories in paint and ink and words, in pictures and in letters. He believes that the world around us is not so complicated, it’s simply the stories we tell each other. He also apparently likes to speak in the third person.

Not really, I’ll stop that now.

But yeah, that’s pretty much it. I’m a writer and an artist. I like to watch baseball and I am deeply in love with sci-fi and fantasy. In real life I work as a Web developer & designer, I have five dogs and a beautiful daughter who dances. This network is a way to share my stories and interests in a (hopefully) entertaining way. It is a creative outlet. In time I would like this to grow, to be a place where others can contribute and share, debate & swap ideas. For now it is a place to highlight my achievements & shamelessly self-promote. But more than anything it is a place to tell stories. So I’d like to tell you a story. If you’d like to hear it I would love it if you took a moment to check it out.
