Paula Offutt lives in the mountains of western North Carolina. She and her partner share an old house with dogs, cats, and a koi named Haiku. Paula believes that humor is what makes the world go ’round, although love is a close second. She surrounds herself with as much of both as she can.
Her first novel, a romance titled Butch Girls Can Fix Anything, won a 2008 Golden Crown Literary Society’s award for Debut Author.
After six years of the dreaded “writer’s block”, her second novel To Sleep, was released in 2013. It was a finalist for a 2014 Golden Crown Literary Society’s award in the Science Fiction/Fantasy category.
