Paula is an Australian journalist, YA writer, and award-winning filmmaker. 

Her young adult manuscript, Finding Snow, was selected for the mentor program YA4YA. It is Outlander meets Snow White and tells the story of an isolated Australian country girl who is thrust back in time where she meets the real-life inspiration for the Brother’s Grimm tale: Snow White.

Her Olympic documentary A Sporting Chance won the highest honour at the Federation Internationale Cinema Television Sportifs (FICTS) Festival in Milan. Beyond this, she has written articles for both print and online publications. Her controversial article for national magazine Inside Sport was nominated for an Australian Sporting Commission journalist award for best print coverage by an individual.

She lives in rural Victoria, with her German Shepherd, Atreyu. She can often be found in her pyjamas, drinking tea (wine), and dreaming of her next pizza.
