About Renée Paule

Many years ago I wrote my autobiography - probably more as therapy than anything else; but life continued happening to me and I got to thinking: what good will this story do, isn’t there enough misery in the world without me adding to it by writing more? I subsequently burnt it. It was around this time when I began searching for meaning in my life that I had a profound experience - a realisation that we’re all connected, we’re One. I began to question everything I knew, accepting nothing at face value, writing down these questions and the thoughts surrounding them. From this, my first book On The Other Hand - The Little Anthology of Big Questions was born. In my books I take an honest look at our quirky and often bizarre behaviour in society, challenging the status-quo we accept as unchangeable; questioning and pushing the boundaries we set ourselves - and those that have been set for us. I’m convinced that if we want to change our lives and change our world then we must first change ourselves - to take responsibility for the things we do and in doing so, take back the power that - in general - we don’t realise we’ve given away. In my writings I give no answers to life’s questions - we already have them and only need find the courage to recognise them, accept them and then act. I invite you to join me on my journey, questioning the society we call ours and the role we play within it.

All but my first book 'On The Other Hand' are illustrated and the blurb for each of them is an accurate description of what to expect inside.

NEW BOOK - Stepping Out of Time - Expected publication spring 2017.

Currently working on an illustrated children's book for children of any age group.

Review by: Devi Nair on April 1, 2015 :
Philosophy has always been my favorite topic. So when I came across this book, there was no second thought. And it was absolutely worth it. Renee has written a beautiful book with so much points to think and ponder about our own life. After reading the book, you really feel like going back and analyzing your life. Renee has given so many points to think of and improve our lives. The book is more of a self help kind of book in a very different.

There are so many self help books available in the market? So what is different about this one? All the other books give us answers to questions which may not be even relevant to us. Renee with her book “Just around the bend” gives us only questions, but those questions are more useful and beneficial than all the other irrelevant answers. These questions make us think and find answers tailor made for ourselves. These answers which we find out ourselves help us so much better than all the ready made answers we get through other self help books

The way she has explained to find happiness within and not to search for someone else to make you happy is something really amazing. Chapters like emotion being energy in motion, or perception, really makes you wonder at things you would never have thought about. The question “Would you be your own friend if you were to meet yourself someday?” is a well known question to check if you find yourself interesting. And Renee has put it up wonderfully in the book.

The book is deeply philosophical and insightful. The entire journey with the book had been beautiful and really knowledgeable. Unfortunately I read the second book first and now going to the first book. But after this, I am sure I will love the first book just as much, if not more.
