This is book 2 in The Witches Amulet series.
A few words from Paulina.....
Hi AR and thanks for having
me. I am a proud pantser. I just sit down and pray my muse shows up to help me
out, if not I laugh at her and keep going.
When I sat down to write my first book I tried to follow
the advice of my English teachers and write an outline. After a week of trying
I started to get annoyed and thought I wasn't cut out to write. Finally giving
up, on the outline, I wrote the first sentence and my characters started to
talk. They didn’t want directions they wanted me to write their story, their
way. Now I refuse to outline.
Not outlining has lead to some pretty amazing characters
and scenes. A little secret, witches were never part of my plan. I went back
and read my first draft and laughter. In my notes it says "wft
witches?" Yup, I was surprised and in a good way. Another surprise was
Michael's sexuality. I tried for months to hook him up with one of the witch
females but it wasn’t working. When he was captured and tossed into the same
room with Marcus I had an Ah ha moment.
So does this mean sometimes I sit at a computer and stare
at the screen? Yes. Do I scream and want to bang my head into the wall? Hell
yes. But I wouldn’t change my writing style for anything because of the small
gems I find each and every time I start edits.
Now with all that being said I still need inspiration to
write and if found it in my love for gargoyles. I love the stone ones, the ones
in books, the ones in my head, hell I love them any way I can get them. I
wanted to write a book that was fantasy with a touch of romance and a lot of
magic. I also wanted to write about two people from two different backgrounds
finding love and learning to trust each other, without one having to change. I
fell in love with a white man and I never want him to morph into a black man
just so I can love him more. I wanted to take that same concept into my books.
These men and women are falling in love with a creature as old as time and they
are going to love them in all their huge glory
is a small town girl with big dreams. She is the second oldest of three talented
As early as three she was directing her family around acting out whatever
current story was in her head. At four between her older brother and her a
whole universe was created which the younger siblings were introduced into as
they were born.
Her natural ability to tell a story took her down many paths. She wrote plays,
poems, small children books and short stories all before she went to high
When picking a career her councilor told her writing was a dying art and so she
went to school for veterinarian science. Three years later she dropped out of
university and went to a community college and took a journalism class, the
rest is history.
In 2008 she graduated with her BA in Communication/Journalism from Cal State
Life got in the way but in 2013 she started a review blog and November 2014 her
first book was published.
