Despite wanting to be a vet, choreographer, card shark, hairdresser and interior designer (although not all at once!) British born Aussie bred Paula ended up as a personal assistant, office manager, software trainer and aerobics instructor for thirteen interesting years, which co-incidentally funded her extensive travel through Europe and the US. Even through all that, she continued to write stories. After fifteen years of honing her craft, submission setbacks and entering over 80 writing contests, Paula’s first book, Forgotten Marriage, was published in November 2007. She was a finalist in Romance Writers of Australia’s Romantic Book of the Year 2008 with Boardrooms & A Billionaire Heir – part of the six-book Diamonds Down Under continuity - and is thrilled to be writing full time.

Paula was the winner of the Australian Romance Readers Association’s Favourite Short Category Romance 2009 award with The Magnate’s Baby Promise.”

Paula lives in western NSW with her family and two opinionated white cats. She still retains a deep love of filing systems, stationery and travelling, even though the latter isn’t nearly as often as she’d like.

'Her Darkest Secret… Revealed

'Banker Luke De Rossi must sell the Australian beach house he inherited from his mobster uncle, fast. But then he runs up against Beth Jones. Is she the rightful tenant? A reporter out for a scoop? His uncle’s lover? Luke wants answers - almost as much as he wants Beth.

'The last thing Beth needs is this hunky magnet for media attention breathing down her neck. She has a lot to hide. And falling hard for Luke as he gets closer - and tries to evict her! - isn’t helping things. Separately, they have each made their bed. Now they’ll lie in it… together.'
