Born in Leeds, currently living in Huddersfield, Paula Acton is many things, an author, a mother to two amazing kids, grandmother to two gorgeous little people, and a slave to a dog, and a cat. She also has two horses which she claims are cheaper and more effective than therapy.
She has a tendency to write with a dark twist but also writes the occasional romance after success in various anthologies trying out different genres.

When not writing she can frequently be found wandering around randomly with her camera or with her headphones in listening to True Crime Podcasts.

Sometimes I need to physically get up and get away from the desk, I frequently find taking the dogs out for a walk and distracting myself allows me to come back refreshed to a problem but sometimes it can be as simple as open a new blank document and write nonsense, jot down ideas for other things or even do an exercise from one of the many writing manuals on my desk. You have to find ways that work for you and don't beat yourself up if you have a bad day or two and can't write, just don't stop trying and eventually your muse will return and you never know there may be a snippet or two in the other stuff worth using later.(less)

Book Review: The Flat Share By Beth O’Leary



 


Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast.
Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash.


Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.


But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demandi
