Paula began inventing stories and writing them down as a child, including one about a magical land inhabited by talking bookworms. After gaining an English degree, she became a primary school teacher. She is also married with two children. She loves inspiring children's imaginations and believes that day-dreaming can be a really good use of your time (although she hasn't actually said that during a lesson). Over the years, she's shared many different authors' books with children, and now can't wait to share her own.
