Hi, I'm Paula. 


I like to write and illustrate children's books (nonfiction is a favorite!)


I grew up on the beautiful Flathead Indian Reservation. Childhood dyslexia made learning to read difficult, but I'm fortunate my brain eventually found a work-around. I was a graphic artist before becoming a mother, a substitute teacher before teaching as an artist in residence at local schools. For a while, I baked muffins and cookies as a professional baker! Finally, I gave myself permission to follow my dream of writing and illustrating children's books.


I hope you enjoy my website. You can follow me on Instagram where I post mostly about nature, Indigenous literature, and picture books. You can also find me on Twitter. Please go to my "Contact" page if you'd like to reach me. Thanks for visiting!
