Paula has always loved to travel and spent a year overlanding around South America and six months crossing Africa. She has visited over 60 countries on six continents – Antarctica will complete the set! Paula prefers wildernesses and wildlife to cities and people, and particularly likes the ‘less loved’ creatures such as spiders and snakes. She is a member of her local wildlife rescue organisation, houses orphaned wombats prior to release, is the local snake catcher and euthaniser for injured wildlife.
A former computer consultant, Paula became an author when she retired, writing a range of short stories, novels, and magazine articles about wildlife and horses. She loves and judges speculative fiction, and the final of her equine fantasy trilogy The Equinora Chronicles was released in October 2022. Paula has recently turned her hand to memoir and looks forward to capturing her experience in Antarctica in both fiction and non-fiction.
