It all started with a four-inch book written in green crayon on peach paper, called "The Rabbet and Dog and Cat." Yes, I realize that's not how rabbit is spelled. I know that now. But when I was five, I wasn't worried about the spelling. I was too busy creating my masterpiece ("illustrated by the author"). Today, my features appear in publications such as: Parents, Better Homes & Gardens, Family Circle, American Baby, FamilyFun, Woman's Day, Ladies' Home Journal, and others.
I write more than just features, though. My fiction includes a middle grade adventure (SUMMER AT FORT TARMETTO: SEARCH FOR REGINALD PEPPERS' LEG), a chick lit series (HALFSIE), and a forthcoming young adult novel (SHE).

Besides tangling with college mascots, Paisley has pub-crawled morning to midnight in the annual Chicago ode to St. Patrick’s Day, capsized a sailboat in Dana Point Harbor, and reluctantly plunged into stingray-infested waters off the Grand Cayman.
Born and raised in “The Burgh”—Pittsburgh that is, Paisley has since lived down south, the midwest, ... read more
