Winner of the 2015 Lush Triumphant Literary Award for fiction.

Winner of the 2014 Lush Triumphant Literary Award for creative non-fiction.

Author of the novel ManBug, and the short fiction collection, Random Acts of Hatred.

Was a writer in residence, in the Yukon, in winter. And loved it.

Men liked you because you were fun, and when they liked you they took you out, and there you were.

Dorothy Parker (Big Blonde)

An astonishing little book, so unconventional and so perfect. I'd heard of this book years ago but could never find a copy. Then I found this reprint version at a bookstore across the street (The Paper Hound, for those people in Vancouver who love bo ...more

The Cougar by Paula Wild
"After reading this book you will have a better respect for cougars and their territory. You will definitely be more aware of you surroundings when hiking in Cougar Country.
Great book and recommend it. "
The Cougar by Paula Wild
"Excellent book and a must-read for anyone who lives in cougar country (such as Vancouver Island)! We have more aggressive cougars here and there are certain things we need to know in order to survive if a cougar sees us as prey."
