Renée Paule

Biography

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.

Smashwords Interview

You have written five books - one for children - and have a sixth in the pipeline on the human condition. What drives you to write?
What makes a flower grow, a heart beat or the sun shine? I don’t know the answers to these questions or to what drives me to write. I only know that I’m driven and that the ‘drive’ grows stronger with each book.
Many people who read your books are looking for answers yet your books provide none; isn’t this rather a contradiction to being a self-help book?
No it isn’t. If I provide answers to questions people have then some of them will listen to me and I may be wrong - it has never been my intention to become a ‘guru’. Self-help means just that; we need to help ourselves and not rely on others to find solutions for us - which leaves us none the wiser; our strength can only be found within. We must look for our own answers and I can only show you how I’m looking for mine. Having said that, I actually have no answers - just fewer and fewer questions and this has made my heart less heavy to lug around.

A compelling and at times uncomfortable look at the world of Humanity through the eyes of one of its inhabitants. You may find yourself nodding your head in agreement and perhaps shaking it in disagreement. However, what you can't deny are the truths contained within about the human psychological condition; in other words, our incredible human traits and behaviour.

'On the Other Hand' looks at how the ‘mind’ works and asks what ‘reality’ actually is. This is not a scientific book but rather it has evolved from looking into my own mind in order that I might understand it more. What are the two voices we all constantly hear? One that says “Leave the chocolate cake” and the other “Go on, eat it”?
