About Paula

It’s often said that good things spring from bad, and in my case, that’s certainly true. Being fired from an executive recruiter position led me to the San Diego library for a little light reading and that was when my love for romance fiction blossomed.

Over the years, I have tackled a variety of jobs – an executive recruiter, an admissions officer in a computer school, a sales rep for a collection agency and a dormitory supervisor at a children's home in Brooklyn. They were all valuable if sometimes intimidating experiences – but all served to add grist to my writing imagination.

My husband and I (who I met when my former sweetheart played cupid after dumping me on my eighteenth birthday) have lived all over the country and are now happily settled on the oldest plant nursery in Douglas County, Oregon. At last count, we owned two purebred Australian shepherds, Molly and Daisy, a three-legged Siamese/Russian blue cat, Cleo, a psychotic Russian blue demon-cat, Sketch, and a mini lop bunny, Bun.
