A native of Maryland, Paula grew up in traditional, small-town Appalachia surrounded by coal mines and paper mills. From chasing lightning bugs to playing in the woods, Paula's childhood primed her for a writing career filled with great expectations and an overabundance of irony and laughter.

Her first novelette, "Escaping the Boy: My Life with a Sociopath," is fiction yet highly based on a not-so-wonderful life experience. Although the title and cover would suggest a moody and dark tale, Paula infuses her storytelling approach with humor and hope.

I am always amazed when I meet people who understand exactly what I am trying to say and equally fascinated by those who don't quite get me. When I am challenged in conversation and struggling to find the right words, I know it's time to sit down and write. Being an introvert, writing down my thoughts is much easier than talking about them. The act of writing and purging my mind of trapped thoughts and emotions is my ultimate inspiration.(less)

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter

Trista Hendren
“Women HAVE a history that has been systematically suppressed. Our collective spirituality has largely been tainted to fit the needs of men and those in power. This has a profound effect on the self-esteem of girls and the women they become. This influence can be seen in their life choices, partners and financial security for the rest of their lives. It also has an effect on the way their future partners will view them - and ultimately treat them. Our girls deserve better. The time to introduce feminism and woman-centered spirituality to ALL children is now.”
