Paul Nicholson is a native of Baltimore, Maryland. He learned about Satanism while involved in a long-term relationship with a woman, who he discovered was a witch and frequently visited a club in downtown Baltimore. Over time he learned that the club was a private organization whose clientele were very famous and wealthy people who practiced witchcraft and worshiped the devil.
Intrigued with the secrecy the surrounded the club he decided to learn about Satanism, witchcraft and the occult. He read through newspaper articles, published FBI reports on satanic cults, and spent hours researching in libraries and occult bookstores. This journey led him to an underground system that few people realized existed. After the relationship ended, Paul moved to San Francisco, California, where he settled into a home near Golden Gate Park. There, he decided to write about his experience with ‘Twenty-Two Ten Saint Charles Street.’
