Paul Sheldon is the main protagonist of Stephen King's 1987 horror novel Misery and the 1990 horror film adaption of the novel's same name. He is a romance novelist whose #1 fan, Annie Wilkes, is a villain. He wrote a successful novel series which involves a woman named Misery Chastain. He is portrayed by James Caan in the film.
Finally, at the end, eighteen months after killing Annie, he is able to walk with the help of a cane. However, in a restaurant, when a waitress tells him she's his number one fan, he accepts this compliment, but he is uncomfortable about it because he imagines her as Annie.
Paul lives in New York City and Los Angeles, but writes his novels in a remote cabin near Sidewinder, Colorado. It has also been revealed that he has been married and divorced several times, although he is a bachelor in the events of the novel.
He is also the author of the Misery Chastain novel series. Paul believes that these novels are little more than dime-store romances, and writes that Misery has died giving childbirth in his latest published work, Misery's Child.
Now that he feels freed from his popular novels, Paul settles in to his writing cabin in Sidewinder, Colorado. After finishing his latest novel on car thieves (Fast Cars), Paul celebrates with champagne and decides to drive to California with his finished manuscript.
