Hi my name is Paula and I love reading and writing and being with my four kids, six bunnies and three dogs. My favourite bunny Al is an avid reader and devours high brow newspapers while I prefer YA, autobiography, the classics and magical realism. Al doesn't get this genre at all and thinks it is far fetched.
I am obsessively fascinated with the past and history. I researched my WW1 veteran relative who served on the Western Front and found myself transfixed with his journey. I found an old photo of him together with an unknown comrade and created a whole story for the mysterious man. Did I mention the word obsessive? Anyway, I gave him some extra height, a chiselled chin and an afterlife that won't quit. It turned into my novel, Heart.
To offset my phantom soldier, I created a trio of teens, all are smart and sassy but each experiencing their own growing up pains (no imagination needed there!!)
I have written children books and contributed to a children literary magazine. Recently I have joined Kids Creative Tales as a book reviewer.
I really enjoyed writing Heart and I hope it brings you enjoyment. Al wishes you all the best too.
