Paula L. Robison grew up on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Montana. Childhood struggles with dyslexia made learning to read difficult, but eventually resolved into a love of reading. She and her spouse shared all sorts of stories with their three, now adult, children. Later, Paula became the story-time and art best friend of pre-school story-time audiences at her favorite local bookstore (where she also worked as a bookseller during college).
Paula holds a B.A. in graphic design and has published illustrations in both children’s and adult genres. She’s a member of SCBWI, Storyteller Academy, 12X12 PB Challenge, and enjoys continually learning more about the craft of writing and illustrating for children’s literature.
Paula’s currently writing and illustrating a board book, companion to her nonfiction picture book about a tiny, endangered fish, which celebrates the relationship between a child and their father. She's also excited to be co-authoring the picture book biography of a brave little boy who, long ago, ran away from the Indian Boarding School he was forced to attend. When not working in her studio, Paula might be found walking trails around her home nestled at the foot of the Sierra Nevadas, or paddleboarding the crystal-clear waters of Lake Tahoe.
