Homemaker, mother of two grown sons, and former off-the-desk publisher of a family-oriented print small press, (1984 thru 1999), The Pink Chameleon, that she now publishes on line, Paula was raised by her grandmother and mother, and has been writing for as long as she can remember. Even before she could set pencil to paper, she would spin her stories in the recording booths in the Brooklyn Coney Island Arcades for a quarter per 3-minute record. She states, "I love the English language, love words and seeing them on display, typed and alive. A romantic at heart, I write simply and emotionally. One of my former editors kindly described my work, '...her pieces are always deep, gentle and refreshing....'" Paula further states, "My stories are sensitive, deeply emotional, sensual when appropriate, yet non-graphic, family fare, pageturners. My hope is that my writing will bring entertainment and uplift the human spirit, bring a smile to your face and your soul, and leave you filled with a generous amount of hope."

Wow! This was such a beautiful Christian romance. It's my new favorite of all the author's books. I love the plot: a wallflower type of teenage heroine who falls in love with a gorgeous upperclassman and holds onto the memory of that one special evening she spent with him only to end up working with him when they're adults.
Helen is awkward and plainer than her fellow classmates in high school, and she's sitting alone at a dance when she falls down. Kurt, the popular guy who has his choice of girls, rushes to help her up and dances with her to ease her from embarrassment. From there, they exchange a few hellos in the hallway but soon he graduates and moves on. A few years later, she's working at a publishing company, and the new editor hired to train her is Kurt. Is this the chance she's been waiting for to be with him at long last?
This story was just so beautiful. You were never quite sure if Kurt returned Helen's feelings or not. There were moments where it seemed that he might, but then the moment would go away and you were left wondering. In everything he did, he was respectful toward her. This is the kind of hero you can fall in love with again and again.
