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 through other great organizations like Writing Barn, PB Summit, and Highlights.

 

Currently, Paula’s working on a nonfiction picture book about a tiny, endangered fish as well as co-authoring the picture book biography of a brave little boy who, long ago, ran away from the Indian Boarding School where he was forced to attend. When not working in her studio, Paula can usually be found walking trails around her home in Reno, NV with her spouse, spending time in the mountains marveling at the beauty of our natural world, or paddleboarding the crystal-clear waters of Lake Tahoe.
