In The News

I have been featured on Sky News, Radio 2 and numerous BBC radio stations. I was also featured in The Independent on Sunday, Financial Times, The Guardian, Red Magazine, Berkshire Life, Country Life, Start Your Own Business, People Today, People Management, OnRec, Management Today, Country Living, Pay Monthly and Financial Mail, along with numerous regional and local publications across the country. I have also been on the morning TV breakfast shows a couple of times to discuss various topics.

I am often asked to comment on BBC Radio and I give talks at seminars across the UK. My husband and I were also featured on both BBC and ITV for the Mumford and Sons ticket scam in Portsmouth. Although it was a huge let down not to see Mumford at Portsmouth due to the the ticket scam, it all turned out FAB because my hubby proposed to me when we finally got to see Mumford at the O2 in London!

My hubby and I were also featured on the BBC Show, Escape to the Continent which showed our quest to live in Spain (so I can write full time!). Find news clippings on Paula's News page on Pinterest.

Writing Awards

I received an ‘Honourable Mention’ in the 75th Annual Writers Digest Writing Competition for two of my novels, Shadow Hunter and The Knowing.

The editor of Writers Digest said: “This year’s contest attracted close to 19,000 entries. Your success in the face of such formidable competition speaks highly of your writing talent, and should be a source of great pride as you continue in your writing career. I congratulate you on your achievement and wish you the best of luck in your future writing.”

I was also nominated as WRITER of the MONTH in January 2007 on literaryagentshowcase.com.

Bob Thompson from The Literary Agent Showcase said: “We would like to congratulate you on becoming WRITER of the MONTH for January 2007 on literaryagentshowcase.com. All of us here at the Showcase were quite taken with your concept and writing style.”

Raindance International Film Festival judged my script, The Knowing, as “commercial ... entertaining ... will attract a lot of interest.”
