Paulette Ivy Harris
IS THIS ALL I TRULY AM? is Paulette's second ebook for children and features her own illustrations in watercolor. RUMA, WARRIOR PRINCESS is her first children's ebook.
The genealogy bug bit her in 1990 and led to her first book of adult nonfiction about her African American ancestry called ALWAYS A BLESSING IN THE END, published in 2005 (available in print format). She used her extensive research of American history and African American history to create Bernice Tulley the fictional heroine in her second book (ebook format only) set in the early 1900s called BENEATH EVERY TROUBLIN STONE, a story inspired by a beloved great-ancestor.
Paulette grew up in St. Louis County, Missouri and is the sixth child in a close knit family of ten children. She is a graduate of Loyola University in Chicago where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology. She has been married to her wonderful husband for more than thirty-six years and has one adult son. Her family currently resides in a suburban Indianapolis community. She is an avid believer in a lifestyle of exercise and healthy cuisine.
